New York is home to the headquarter office in the South Bronx with IT training operations in the Bronx, Brooklyn and now parts of Manhattan serving more than 500 individuals a year through our courses. Per Scholas is the oldest and largest IT Workforce Development organization in the city — more than 4,500 trained since 1998 — and the only one of its kind serving individuals 18 and up, providing New Yorkers the help they need regardless of age.

All Per Scholas programs, no matter where they operate, combine three essential components:
• High quality, hands-on technical skills training led by certified and experienced instructors, with a curriculum designed to help students achieve passage of one or more IT professional certification exams.
• Extensive “soft skills” instruction, including job-seeking skills (resume preparation, interviewing and job negotiation); and workplace skills (teamwork, communication, presentation, customer service, etc.).
• Ongoing, individualized support for job placement, personal and career development. These support services lead to a consistent 75-percent post-training job placement rate.
All courses begin year-round on a rolling basis and services are free thanks to the support of our private and corporate supporters.
