At New Force, students apply their new coding skills in group projects. Here, lead instructor Jordan Castelloe provides guidance to students Luke Miller and Seaver Stanley, while they work as a team to build a web application for a mock client.

Generation West Virginia’s NewForce program received $167,000 in federal funds to help strengthen the program that prepares underemployed West Virginians with no prior coding experience for their first career in the technology industry.

Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va, a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, made the announcement saying the program helps those enrolled to get to their first career in the technology industry and connects them with good-paying, long-term software development jobs.
