HackCville's Launch Bootcamp summer program offers a unique combination of skill building and professional development unlike any summer program available.

All of this is free up-front. Students pay HackCville a small percentage of their full-time salary when they get a job, spread out over the course of one year. If you don't find a full-time job after one year, we'll waive the cost of the program. Read on for details.

How Payment Works

We've made the program free up-front to remove the risk of learning new skills and finding a job you'll love.

You must be looking for a full-time job to participate in this program. If and when you find a job after the program, you'll pay us 1/10 of your gross salary over the course of 9 months.

For example, let's say that we help you find a job that pays $60,000 / year, which is about average for a junior developer. You will pay us 1/10th of that ($6000) over the course of 9 months (about $660/month) after you start your job.

If you can't find a job after 1 year after completing the program, you won't owe us anything. That means we don't succeed unless you do.

"I love the endless amount of resources and guidance HackCville offers. From having members/staff take 5 minutes to sit down and talk to me, to endless workshops throughout the semester, to the random email/text messages - everyone genuinely cares about one another."

- Nina Satasiya, HackCville Program Graduate, Class of 2018
