As we close in on the end of the first two decades of the 21st century, it's a great time to take a good look at your nonprofit organization's current digital strategy.

While students are referred to our program through a variety of outlets, the largest (and most rapidly growing) referral source is through previous graduates. Jonathan Hinds and Bobby Powell are two of our newest alumni, and they happened to hear about ITWorks from the same person.

We spent some time with Jonathan and Bobby to hear about how Rob’s life caught their attention, and what their ITWorks experience was like.
As we begin to enter the new year in just a short couple of days, it’s important to revisit or perhaps visit for the first time, a strategic plan.

Knowing how to implement these processes might seem daunting but we’ve compiled a list to help get you started.
No matter what industry you are in, security is important. When you are running a nonprofit organization, knowing the importance of computer & network security is vital to your success.

As the holidays approach it is important to reflect on your performance in the past year and consider making steps toward moving forward for 2018. You might be thinking about technological shortcomings your company faced this year or other problems that may need attention.
