This year has shown itself to be fertile ground for the launch of an IT apprenticeship program. We have enrolled nineteen (19) apprentices and graduated thirteen (13). We have placed each of them who desired to begin a career in IT with employer partners who are paying them livable wages. 

Certifications our graduates have attained include: 

- CompTIA ITF+

- CompTIA Network+

- Duda Web Designer

- Adobe Illustrator

We are very proud of what our apprentices have accomplished. Two of our graduates now earn over $38,000 per year before bonuses and benefits! The next phase of our program is to enroll new apprentices and create sustainability for the program. To accomplish this we will utilize contract labor, leverage our funding sources, and create deeper relationships with our employer partners. 

We appreciate your support and thank you.
