Per Scholas

Talent is ubiquitous, opportunity is not. 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.

Per Scholas collaborates with businesses to design industry- and job-specific courses based on employers’ IT needs. Highly motivated students receive technology skills training and professional development tailored to business’ needs. Students earn industry recognized certifications and Per Scholas helps match talented graduates to employers, providing career support throughout the process.

Per Scholas creates real opportunities for Boston area residents to build better lives for themselves and their families. They prepare smart, dedicated people to work in key technical roles, and design their courses in response to what employers tell them they need. Per Scholas is helping to provide access to the growing opportunities in Boston’s tech center for people who are interested, building a more diverse technical workforce for women, people of color and other groups staggeringly underrepresented in IT employment today.
