Per Scholas

WHAT WE DO
Many of today’s most promising career opportunities are in the tech sector, but not every person has access to the same onramps to those opportunities. We collaborate with business to design industry- and job-specific courses based on employers’ IT needs. We teach technology skills and professional development, tailored to business’needs, to highly motivated students from overlooked talent pools. We match talented graduates to employers, providing career support throughout the process. We’re not just training people for a job. We’re arming people with life-changing business and life skills that result in long-term success.

WHO WE SERVE
We serve individuals who are un- or underemployed and seeking a better career path. Our students are motivated and intellectually curious problem-solvers, and they have an interest in technology.

Per Scholas (pronounced: per, -Skoal-us) was established in 1995. It was and remains headquartered in the South Bronx, New York, though it now operates its technology job training, which it launched in 1998, in six cities.
