Tech Force



The TechForce Scholarship Ambassador Program

NorthBridge was developed for the TechForce Foundation. This program provides scholarships and coaching support. These students will be the automotive, diesel, and motorcycle technicians of the future. These technicians play an essential role in keeping our country moving.

Through proven postsecondary onboarding practices, and an executive functioning curriculum, delivered by a Success Coach who provides initial support for selected cohorts. Support continues throughout the student’s program and benefits from peer to peer mentoring.

Students meet monthly for the college success circle workshop, where the student ambassadors share experiences, advice, and support for incoming students.

The program is currently working with over 60 students in 15 cohorts of TechForce Ambassadors, and selection for the next cohorts are already underway.  To date, 96% of Ambassadors are still in school and 56% of them have earned straight A’s.

To apply for this program please visit the TechForce Foundation site.

This program exists at the following two campuses. Avondale Campus of Universal Technical Institute (UTI), and the Phoenix campus of Motorcycle Mechanics Institute (MMI).

"The TechForce Ambassador Program, is perfect for students who enjoy mentorship and working with other students to reach the common goal of graduating from UTI with flying colors. The program so far has been very beneficial and it will ensure that students succeed at UTI as long as they participate and stay on the path that the ambassador program paved."
