Per Scholas Participates in Capgemini’s Impact Together Week

There are numerous ways to partner with Per Scholas to impact the professional and personal development of our learners and graduates. Corporations can volunteer by participating in resume reviews, industry discussions, and mock interviews. This month, Per Scholas proudly participated in Capgemini’s Impact Together Week, a week of volunteer events for various organizations. With Per Scholas, they held ten volunteer sessions within four days that included mock interviews and ‘Ask Me Anything’ events for our learners and graduates to gain industry knowledge.

In these events, Capgemini staff paired up with Per Scholas learners and graduates to share their industry knowledge with these future technologists. Among the employee volunteers were several Per Scholas alumni who had secured roles at Capgemini following graduation, who offered unique insights into life in the tech industry following their experience in Per Scholas’ training program.  This week-long volunteer opportunity provided Per Scholas with over 2,000 volunteer hours – a tremendous influence for our learners. 

We encourage all of our partners to volunteer their time with our learners and impact their professional development throughout their training at Per Scholas.  If you are interested in a volunteer opportunity, either for your company or as an individual, please contact CiCi Flanagan at [email protected].
