Connecting Northwest NC with the Tech Economy
NC Tech Paths is on a mission to provide our rural neighbors with access to the tech economy through skills training, professional development, job placement, and wraparound services.
Our vision is for NWNC to be a thriving tech hub, where remote and hybrid tech jobs provide our neighbors with high-wage work, where our Main Street businesses are growing, and our young residents want to stay.
Offering career opportunities for the workforce in Northwest NC who want to pursue high-demand, high-wage jobs in the digital economy.
Supporting community economic development in Northwest NC by revitalizing the local economy and downtowns with tech innovation.
Advancing social justice by bridging demographic gaps, such as the rural-urban divide, that limit access and inclusion in the digital economy.
