We all know what it feels like to land a job -- the joy it brings, the sense of relief, the feeling of self worth. Who helped you get to where you are today?

Per Scholas provides that help to hundreds of individuals each year. With millions of new IT jobs available today, we work so every individual who walks through the doors at Per Scholas gets a fresh start in a new career. We can't do this without your help. 100% of your contribution to Per Scholas will support free IT training and job placement services for hundreds of low-income and unemployed individuals.

On average a student comes into Per Scholas making $7,000 annually. Among those placed in jobs after they graduate, the figure jumps to nearly $30,000. That's impact. The new beginnings we create benefit everyone — with more taxes paid, fewer public benefits expended and greater quality of life all around.

Our students’ stories don't happen by themselves. The work of Per Scholas is only as successful as you can help make it. By joining our mission to break the cycle of poverty and unemployment and grow the middle class, you can make a truly impressive difference for the people like Kombo, Kevin, Shannon, Marianne, and Tristan, and for everyone who lives and works in our communities.

It is a uniquely powerful role — and only you can fill it. Read the stories of our students and make a donation toward the new beginning that means the most to you.

And, The Per Scholas Board of Directors have very generously pledged to match dollar-for-dollar every single donation that comes in until the end of the year - up to $30,000.

If we collectively raise $30,000 for Per Scholas, it instantly doubles to $30,000. That's some serious impact. If you give $50, it turns into $100.
