Creating IT Futures is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that works to unlock people's potential in tech. Formed in 1998 as the leading charity of CompTIA – the world's largest (IT) industry association – CITF opens doors to the possibilities in tech. Every day we provide opportunities for youth and adults to learn, grow and thrive as technologists of the future.

We create on-ramps for people to prepare for, secure and succeed in IT careers. We particularly encourage an IT path for populations that traditionally have been under-represented in the information technology workforce, such as women, people of color and veterans.
