And tonight, we’ll be taking a trip to 138th St. in the Bronx into the offices of Per Scholas. They provide tuition-fee technology training to unemployed or underemployed adults for careers as IT professionals. We’ll begin with their CEO Plinio Ayala and then we’ll hear from other members of the team on what makes their corporate culture so special.
There is an organization headquartered in New York City that you need to know about. Over the past 23 years, it has helped change the lives of 9,000 individuals, mostly from overlooked communities, and has helped provide them a good career through tuition-free tech training. It’s called Per Scholas.
