Kingsland University and DevLeague Enter Exclusive Partnership to Help Hawaii

HONOLULU, Jan. 11, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Kingsland University, a leading organization that provides social impact through education, today announced a strategic partnership with DevLeague, Hawaii's only immersive technical training program for software engineering and cybersecurity professionals. The new alliance will help build Hawaii's tech workforce through the latest, job-ready skills training that provides accelerated career opportunities and re-careering pathways. The $1M in scholarships will be immediately available to 400 Veterans and Hawaii residents.

"This partnership will help prepare those in Hawai?i for high-tech jobs in the digital workforce," Governor David Ige said. "I want to thank Kingsland University for making this investment in Hawai?i's future, and I am grateful that DevLeague will be able to mentor and train even more of Hawai?i's best and brightest for careers in technology."  

Led by industry experts, tech practitioners and educators with real world experience, Kingsland University focuses on preparing students for the most in-demand, highly paid career paths within emerging technologies such as software engineering, cybersecurity, and blockchain development with starting salaries typically ranging from $55,000 to $70,000 a year.

"COVID-19 has had a devastating impact on the economy and the people of Hawaii. However, it has also accelerated the transition to the digital economy and increased opportunities for Hawaii residents to access well-paying, high-growth, tech jobs without having to leave for the mainland," said Russel Cheng, Co-Founder at DevLeague.  "DevLeague's exclusive partnership with Kingsland will bring new and improved curriculum, expanded in-demand career offerings, and accreditation for its programs, as well as access to a larger global network and access to all neighbor islands – such as Kauai, Big Island and Maui."

"The DevLeague team has built a strong community and industry network here in Hawaii. We want to continue that growth," said John Souza, CEO of Kingsland University. "Our goal is to greatly increase accessibility to top quality skills training so that people of all backgrounds can take advantage of the vast career opportunities."

Founded in 2013 by two local entrepreneurs Jason Sewell and Russel Cheng, DevLeague has helped more than 300 graduates' transition into new career paths in the technology sector at companies, such as Microsoft, Amazon, Google, Apple, Nike, Accenture, Riot Games, Booz Allen, Hawaii Pacific Health, eWorld, Hawaii Resources Group, DISA Pacific Command, State of Hawaii and City and County of Honolulu IT enterprise divisions.
