What We Do
The Creating IT Futures Foundation organizes its work along the lines of many in the IT business: in the categories of service
Creating IT Futures is committed to helping populations under-represented in IT and individuals lacking in opportunity to prepare for, secure, and be successful in IT careers. Creating IT Futures has historically focused on helping people afford and attain the training and certifications they need to be successful.
In 2012, Creating IT Futures began working directly with employers to establish for our candidates six-month apprenticeships that may lead to permanent full-time employment. The IT-Ready Apprentice Program
was launched in three cities: Cincinnati, Columbus, and Minneapolis / St. Paul, enrolling approximately 75 unemployed individuals and training them toward the CompTIA A+ certification exam.
