The Loudoun Learners Program

The region has a tremendous need for experienced technologists, but new careers are stifled by businesses that require years of experience for entry-level roles. The Loudoun Learners Program remedies this disparity by helping aspiring developers and engineers launch a great tech career.

Created in partnership with the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments, the Loudoun Learners Program connects promising residents with a paid, full-time technology role for two years. Participants gain the skills and experience they need to grow their careers through the power of experiential learning under the guidance of expert mentors.

We invite technophiles to take the first step in their professional journey by applying for this program. Applicants must live in Loudoun County, VA.

How the Program Works

  1. Prospective participants must complete the online application by August 4, 2024.
  2. Six selected applicants will receive on-the-job training in a paid full-time role from October 2024 through June 2026.
  3. Through this program, participants gain business and technology skills such as Agile/Scrum, software development, ServiceNow, and professional confidence.
  4. Following program completion, participants will be equipped to pursue a Loudoun County job opportunity.
