Truist Foundation

Partner Since


About the partnership

Truist Foundation is partnering with Per Scholas to expand its technology skills training efforts in North Carolina with a specific focus on rural communities, aligning with the foundation’s mission to inspire and build better lives and communities.

With the poverty rate in rural North Carolina significantly higher than the state’s urban areas and high school graduation rates notably lower, this accessibility to tuition-free tech training and direct connections to employers to secure quality jobs is unmatched in the region—making an investment from the Truist Foundation incredibly impactful. The Truist Foundation’s investment will enable Per Scholas to: 

  • Launch one of the largest rural tech training initiatives in the country, enabling us to distill relevant lessons for Per Scholas and the broader workforce development community
  • Support IT job training for 500 North Carolinians over the next two years, half of whom will come from rural communities
  • Establish local partnerships in North Carolina to increase opportunities for thriving tech careers and economic mobility to more rural learners
