Since launching its first program in the Fall of 2013, Utah-based V School has provided technology training to eight refugee populations in the state through a partnership with the Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED).
“Programming and Web Development have become the de facto international languages of our generation, and literacy as technologies slide seamlessly across all borders,” says V School CEO and Co-Founder, Michael Zaro. “Seeing the success we have had previously in helping refugees catapult into the world of high-paying, high-demand high-tech jobs, we were curious to see if there were opportunities to leverage our systems and expertise outside of the U.S".

“We’re also really proud of the fact that the average V School graduate successfully lands a full-time job in their chosen field within 30 days of graduation,” Zaro added.
V School partners with hiring managers and industry leaders to craft educational curricula and programs that serve as a direct pipeline for employment, with many students receiving job offers before graduation. V School is one of the few Coding Bootcamps that currently has a 100 percent job placement rate (for students seeking jobs), with the average V School graduate finding full-time employment in his/her field of study within 30 days of graduation.
