As our ITWorks Fall 2017 sessions come to a close this morning in PA, we wanted to take some time to thank all of our wonderful, dedicated volunteers. Without them, running our program would not be possible!
The ITWorks Las Vegas Fall 2017 class is graduating this week! After an intensive 11 weeks of class time, five weeks in an internship, and CompTIA A+ certifications, the students are ready to start their careers in the IT field. Read more to learn about Taylor Sundwall, one of the students graduating this week.
The students in our ITWorks Delaware class are more than halfway through the Fall 2017 session! By the end of this week, students will be CompTIA A+ certified and focusing on their internships starting next week. Nick heard about the program from a friend who graduated a few years ago and has been impressed at what the friend accomplished since ITWorks – even buying a house – so he knew he had to give it a try. We sat down to check-in about his experience. Read on to learn more.
The students in our ITWorks Philadelphia class are more than halfway through the Fall 2017 session! With CompTIA A+ certification exams happening now, students are busy studying and preparing for their internships. We sat down with one of the students, Isaiah Ginyard, to hear about his experience in the ITWorks program. While always with a job in the food service industry, he grew frustrated with the lack of growth opportunities. After two friends found success in the ITWorks program, Isaiah knew he needed to give it a shot. Read on to learn more!
ITWorks Las Vegas is more than halfway through its fourth ITWorks class! Between the demands of the ITWorks classroom and managing their work, family, and personal responsibilities – sometimes it can be challenging to stay motivated for the whole program. Ryan Gold has demonstrated his commitment to ITWorks with his strong attendance record and self-motivation. We recently spoke with Ryan to hear about the source of his drive and ambition.

Community service is an important aspect of businesses in the world today. We often hear about financial institutions getting involved in community service projects, but it’s less common to hear about a bank partnering with a community organization to tangibly change the projection of individual lives in their communities. When it comes to Barclays, that is exactly what they do with Tech Impact’s workforce development programs – ITWorks and CXWorks. For Barclays, a credit card provider that has been helping people reach their financial goals for over 50 years, community service and partnership is at the core of their mission and values and, thus, of their employees as well.
The ITWorks Delaware started the Fall 2017 session this week! We caught up with one incoming student to learn how he heard about the ITWorks program and what made him decide to apply. Kyle Williams’ father works in the IT field in Las Vegas. When his dad came to know of our ITWorks class in Las Vegas and that it was offered in Wilmington – he knew that Kyle needed to give it a shot. Having been introduced to technology as a child, Kyle always had an interest and is ready to turn it into a career. Read on to learn more about Kyle’s story.
The ITWorks Philadelphia class is kicking-off the Fall 2017 session this week! We spent some time with one incoming student, Edwin Wilkinson, to learn about what drew him to the ITWorks program and what he is most looking forward to. With two small sons at home, Edwin has been looking for a career that will allow him to better provide for his family. After two of his cousins found success in the ITWorks program, he decided it was time to take his interest in technology to the next level. Read on to learn more about Edwin’s story.
