Description

Per Scholas was founded more than 20 years ago with a mission to open doors to transformative technology careers for individuals from often overlooked communities. We accomplish this mission today by:

CREATING OPPORTUNITY

For people who work hard, we create real opportunities to build better lives for themselves and their families.

CLOSING THE SKILLS DIVIDE

We prepare smart, dedicated people to work in key technical roles, always designing our courses in response to what employers tell us they need.

ACHIEVING DIVERSITY

We are building a more diverse technical workforce by creating on-ramps for women and people of color, groups staggeringly underrepresented in IT employment today. 90% of our students are people of color, a third are women and a third are disconnected young adults.

Thank you so much for your interest in Per Scholas. Attending the Information Session at Per Scholas is the first step in your pursuit of employment in the IT field. We encourage you to start the process today.

Next Steps...

  • Apply to the training course of your preference HERE.

  • Please arrive 15 minutes prior to the start of the Information Session.

  • Be advised, Information Sessions last approximately 3 hours as you will learn more about the programs provided, which also includes 70 minutes to take the TABE (Test for Adult Basic Education) exam. NOTE: You will NOT be permitted to use a calculator or cell phone during the exam.

We strongly recommend you prepare for this exam before attending the Information Session and have provided you with training materials and a sample test via the links below:

FAQs

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

18


What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Take the local 6 train to Cypress Ave.


What kinds of jobs can I get after completing this training?


A wide variety: everything from working in an office supporting other computer users to helping manage a global corporate network or becoming a field technician installing and servicing remote locations.

They all fall into the general categories of IT support management and end-user services.

IT support involves keeping computer systems running smoothly and securely at all times.

End-user support means helping other people—whether customers or employees—use computer systems and software effectively.

Starting salaries vary greatly, but the average is about $30,000 per year.

How can the course be free? Are there hidden fees?


Most people who learn about us think: “Too good to be true.” We know it seems that way, but it’s true. Our services are provided at no cost to you, using funds we raise from foundations, corporations, government and generous individuals.

The costs you can prepare for include transportation or childcare—expenses that take care of you so you can focus on your studies.


I receive unemployment insurance benefits or other benefits that require me to spend time working or looking for work. Can I still enroll?

Yes. Per Scholas courses are approved for people receiving unemployment insurance, as well as other benefits that would ordinarily require them to spend time working or looking for work. Your benefits should not be affected. If you have questions or concerns about your situation, please contact us.


I meet other requirements, but I am not a U.S. citizen and haven’t received my work authorization yet. Can I still apply?

Unfortunately, we cannot process your application until you have received clearance to work in the U.S. However, if you are experiencing problems, we can refer you to other organizations that may be able to help.


I have childcare responsibilities. Can you accommodate me?

We have onsite staff available to help students navigate childcare options. Ask to speak with the Childcare Navigator when you attend an info session.


I have a disability. Can you accommodate me?

We comply fully with the Americans with Disabilities Act and other relevant laws and regulations. Please contact us at admissions@perscholas.org or (718) 991-8400 to discuss your specific situation and needs.
