Beyond helping adult learners find rewarding new careers in tech, they passionately pursue working with K-12 students, school teachers, and districts in the Mid-South to ensure they are helping ignite the desire to learn tech skills at an early age. Their recent efforts around policy and advocacy are helping to ensure all of the one million students in Tennessee have a chance to succeed.
