"I was told that once you had the willingness to learn, ITWorks would provide everything, and that's exactly what they did." Upon graduating with dual certifications, and one of the highest grades in the class, William secured an entry-level help desk support position with IPR International. He has since been promoted.

ITWorks is offered free of charge to young adults 18-25. Our students are unemployed or underemployed. They emerge from the program with industry-recognized certifications, hands-on experience, and the professional skills and network they need to compete for jobs in the technology workforce. These jobs boost their income potential for life.
