Invest in an IT-Ready Student

You'll invest in hard work and create career opportunities for unemployed and underserved adults.

Through IT-Ready, we help to  diversify the tech industry and open career doors to a wider demographic. We particularly encourage populations that traditionally have been under-represented in the IT workforce, such as women and people of color, to launch their tech careers.

Career Program

Creating IT Futures’ IT-Ready program assesses, trains, certifies and places unemployed and underemployed adults into tech careers for free. We’ve invested more than $3 million in developing, testing and proving our eight-week, full-time classroom training program.

 

Since our program launched in 2012, IT-Ready and our partners have trained hundreds of motivated Americans with an aptitude for technology. We’re putting hard-working adults back into the workforce where they can earn family-sustaining wages and drive the economic growth of this country.

Inspire Teens

We have the ability to inspire the tech workforce of the future, but we must go to the students. Funded by CompTIA and STEM-focused donors and managed by Creating IT Futures, NextUp introduces teens to the many possibilities of technology careers and guide them to the tech career of their choosing.

 

Through curricula, projects, partnerships and mentorship, we aim to spark curiosity and passion for technology through meaningful engagement. By connecting teens to the promise of technology today, we hope to build a generation of technologists for tomorrow.
