Tech Impact is excited to announce the launch of ITWorks, a free 16 week IT certification program for
underemployed youth, in Las Vegas, February 2016.
With classes currently offered in Philadelphia and
Wilmington, Delaware, the program teaches students IT configuration and networking skills and
matched them with mentors and internships at Fortune 500 companies like Capital One, Barclays and JP
ITWorks has graduated more than 200 students nationally since 2010. One hundred percent of program
graduates are placed into IT internships and 75 percent find full-time opportunities within seven months
of graduation. All graduates receive the Cisco IT Essential Professional Certification, and approximately
80 percent of graduates also receive the COMPTIA A+ Professional Certification.
ITWorks is seeking volunteers who want to change lives. Your participation is what sets this program
apart and what makes being an ITWorks student such a special experience. There are many ways to get
involved in our program. You can become a mentor, host a Friday “soft skills” session, host a lunch &
learn, or even provide an internship. To learn more or to sign up to volunteer with this award-winning
program, please visit: http://techimpact.org/our-programs/itworks/volunteer-with-itworks/
