Sagar is proud to sit on the New York Advisory board of Per Scholas, a national nonprofit that drives positive and proven social change in communities across the country. Through rigorous and tuition-free technology training and professional development, Per Scholas prepares motivated and curious adults who are unemployed or underemployed for successful careers as technology professionals, and creates onramps to businesses in need of their talents.
Per Scholas makes an incredible difference for those whose potential is great but whose opportunities are limited helping each student build skills to land a good job and gain a foothold in the middle class. 85% of Per Scholas students graduate — and of those, at least 80% begin working in jobs that pay an average of $21/hour to start. That’s 4x times their average pre-training incomes.
To celebrate our wedding, please make a contribution to Per Scholas. Your gift will make a huge difference in the lives of their students, and help build strong families and communities in New York and accross the country.
