No one gift of time, talent or treasure makes our objective – nurturing the next generation of technologists for our nation’s IT workforce -- possible. It takes a team: our people and our partners.
We appreciate every gift in any form that we receive from each supporter. However, during this season of gratitude, we want to devote a few posts to saying thanks to some special partners by sharing who they are and what they do to support aspiring technologists and others around the country.
- Otto Bremer Foundation – With financial support from Otto Bremer Foundation, we were able to provide IT job training and career services to individuals in Minnesota traditionally under-represented in the tech industry.
- Pitney Bowes—Thanks to the Pitney Bowes Foundation’s longstanding support, we were able to encourage populations that traditionally have been under-represented in the IT workforce, such as women and people of color, to launch tech careers.
- TEKSystems – In partnership with TEKSystems, we have expanded the IT-Ready career program to offer more classes for unemployed and under-employed adults. In addition, TEKSystems works with IT-Ready graduates to place them in tech jobs.
- Worksystems –Thanks to Worksystems’ involvement with Creating IT Futures, we were able to train, certify and connect unemployed and under-employed adults with employers for their first jobs in the IT field.
- Wounded Warrior Project—Through a partnership with the Wounded Warrior Project’s Warriors to Work Program, we have been able to reach wounded warriors and their family members to provide IT training and career services resources.
Thank you to all our partners and donors.
