How It Works

A double win

At Per Scholas, we work with you to design industry- and job-specific courses based on your IT needs, then provide technology skills and professional development training to our students to meet those needs.

Our partnership program is rooted in five pillars of engagement: volunteering, leadership, hiring, giving, and computer recycling. We offer powerful ways for you to invest in local communities.

Initiatives

Driving innovation

Some partnerships generate innovations that set a new standard for what the nonprofit and corporate sectors, working together, can accomplish—and in ways that benefit both.

We live in an age when all technology workers need top-notch cybersecurity skills, but too few have them. It’s another arena in which Per Scholas and our partners can make a powerful difference.
