Igniting Change: TLM’s Partnership with Formation

The Last Mile (TLM) is thrilled to announce a meaningful collaboration with Formation, the only AI-powered, dynamic interview prep program completely personalized to the participant. Formation’s mission is to diversify tech’s engineering workforce, offering a comprehensive program for software engineers from nontraditional backgrounds. Their vision for a more equitable tech industry aligns with The Last Mile’s values of ensuring equitable and inclusive access to careers for talent with records.

We have always believed in the power of technology to drive positive change and create opportunities for justice-impacted talent. Our partnership with Formation allows us to leverage our collective resources, expertise, and networks to amplify impact and support our missions. 

TLM alumni will have the opportunity to join Formation’s Fellowship Program, which gives participants access to unconditional support from a team of hundreds of FAANG-level engineering mentors, technical recruiters, career coaches, and more. Through this partnership, we’ll equip individuals with the skills, confidence, and opportunities needed to succeed in the tech sector. TLM alum, Jacob Robinson is in Formation’s Fellowship Program and he shares, 

“Formation feels like an extended family. They genuinely care about your overall well being, not just your proficiency as a Software Engineer. The level of support I have received has been invaluable. I’ve had the opportunity to work alongside like minded individuals under the guidance of senior engineers from some of the top companies in the industry. I have learned the fundamentals of computer science, data structures, and algorithms. More importantly, I have developed an engineering mindset that has changed my approach to problem solving. My confidence in reaching my goal of becoming a Software Engineer is at an all-time high knowing my Formation team is working alongside me every step of the way.”

Together, we can create a future where everyone has the opportunity to succeed, regardless of their background or circumstances.

Here’s to a brighter, more inclusive future for all.
