Corporate Giving

and Community Impact

Building The
of The Future

We connect some of society’s most underserved communities with training and education in technology and business skills to help prepare them for employment in the digital age.


By investing in the development of people’s technology and business skills, we believe we can contribute to improving their lives today and equip them to shape the economy of the world tomorrow. Whether creating pathways to technology careers for diverse youth, engaging in STEM education or upskilling adults for more meaningful and better-paying work, we're helping to prepare communities for the workforce of the future.
