  • Launched an exciting new Satellite Training Partnerships initiative in New York to expand access to tech training across communities that have not traditionally been reached through Per Scholas’  in-person training, like Staten Island
  • Developed the Amazon Web Services re/Start course in response to employer talent needs, and helped Per Scholas grow its availability across several markets
  • Engaged 59 Amazon employees to volunteer their time to expose learners in Boston, Dallas, Newark, and the National Capital Region to the IT industry and provide insight into the job search through guest lectures and mock interviews
  • Connected 89 Per Scholas graduates to careers at Amazon, opening the doors to thriving wages in the field for individuals traditionally underrepresented in the industry
