Per Scholas brings hands-on tuition-free technology training and certification to talented students in often overlooked communities across the United States, expanding access to well-paying technology careers, and standing by our graduates as they create brighter futures for their families and communities. The classroom is the heart of the Per Scholas experience, but the Coronavirus pandemic challenged us to imagine beyond those walls in order to ensure that all of our enrolled students could complete their studies.
In only four days, Per Scholas successfully mobilized to transition nearly 500 students across the country from an in-person classroom experience, to a fully remote distance learning model. Now, we are expanding our capacity to educate the next 500 students remotely.
Per Scholas has a proven track record - launching more than 10,000 careers in technology to date, and helping individuals quadruple their incomes post training. In these uncertain times, evidence-based training for jobs that are still in demand is critical to helping stabilize our economy and ensuring opportunity for overlooked communities.
Today, providing that opportunity requires remote education as a crucial component of ensuring great outcomes for Per Scholas students. Since many students don’t have access to computers or high-speed internet at home, Per Scholas is investing in portable equipment like laptops and mobile wifi hotspots for our students to use for the duration of their studies.
Purchasing and maintaining this equipment is expensive, so we are grateful for your contribution. Donating to Per Scholas TODAY through Stand Together means that your impact will be DOUBLED. Matching funds will not last, so please consider making a contribution today.
Your contribution is a crucial investment in growing the talent that we know is hidden in plain sight: people in overlooked communities who may lack the opportunities—but not the motivation or intellectual curiosity—to join the ranks of our nation’s growing tech sector.
