TechCorps is an initiative of citizen commons that provides a unique opportunity for fresh graduates interested in launching a career in technology to access cutting edge training and gain work experience while completing their national service.
It is a paid program where recruited fellows leverage their primary assignment to acquire specialized tech skills, use technology as a tool to solve Nigeria’s development challenges while acquiring practical experience to launch a successful tech experience post service.
This intervention is designed to help bridge skills gap, reduce unemployment and prepare fresh graduates to transition to a tech career without necessarily having a tech background.

Techcorps extends the service-learning vision of the national service by providing enrolled corps members with an opportunity to use technology to find innovative solutions to some of the challenges facing our country while acquiring practical skills for career success in tech
