As our ITWorks Fall 2017 sessions come to a close in Wilmington, we wanted to take some time to thank all of our wonderful, dedicated volunteers. Without them, running our program would not be possible!
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.
ITWorks Delaware kicked off today in Wilmington, and we met with new student Morgan Dubicki to learn more about what she was doing prior to joining the program and where she hopes to be when she leaves.

“Looking back on my experience at ITWorks will always be a bright and shining moment. It provided me an opportunity to move into a career in IT, something I'd been considering for a while. My life has dramatically improved in all kinds of ways since graduation, all of which I can thank the ITWorks team for,” Michael Wanner, a graduate of the Fall 2016 class in Delaware reflected on his experience recently. Now, the ITWorks team is ready to welcome a new cohort of students for Spring 2017.
As the Delaware ITWorks Fall 2016 session draws to a close (graduation is on Thursday, December 22nd!), we wanted to take some time to thank all of our wonderful, dedicated volunteers. Without them, running our program would not be possible!

Last week a group of young people had the chance to check out some of Microsoft’s newest technology during a field trip held by Tech Impact’s ITWorks Delaware.
ITWorks is a 16-month program dedicated to changing lives by providing IT training to high achieving high school graduates who have not moved on to college. The program’s participants earn a professional certification in IT and real-world internship experience.
Last Friday, a group of ITWorks Delaware took a field trip to the Microsoft Store at the Christiana Mall, where they were provided with a hands-on demonstration of the software giant’s latest operating system and tablet technology. Students learned about the newest features of Windows 8 and the newly released Surface Tablets.
Kitty Heite, lead instructor for ITWorks Delaware, said the group “also got a chance to play games, ask the team there questions and found out some fun details about the culture at Microsoft (as well as potential job opportunities). It was a very educational and interesting trip!”
