Researching Solutions - Creating IT Futures

Researching Solutions

To help people in need of sustainable careers, we study, create, test and launch innovative non-profit programs. Our new IT Futures Labs leads the way in our research and test piloting.

In its survey of teen views on tech careers, IT Futures Labs researched how urban minority teens as well as parents regard IT jobs, college and future careers. Our corresponding white paper discusses IT career myths and how to dispel them, career motivations for teens, and the role parents play in providing career guidance.

Creating IT Futures is designing new models for internships so that students can get real work experiences as they develop their own education and career paths. Check out our 4Ps of Internships

Trainers also need data to help them prove the success of their students. Our research is helping community colleges do just that through our data sharing on industry certifications and their effect on long-term student success.

Creating IT Futures

A 501(c)(3) charity was established in 1998 by CompTIA, the Information Technology Industry Trade Association, as a way to help people improve their lives through IT careers.


We help populations that are under-represented in IT and individuals who are lacking in opportunity to prepare for, secure and be successful in IT careers.
