For each new hire made with Entelo, we sponsor one certification test for a student at The Stride Center.
Even as California continues to lead in the technology innovation that drives the economy, concentrated pockets of profound poverty and unemployment remain. The people who live in these communities, where unemployment rates can be almost double the national average, and where close to 40 percent of families are living in poverty, are the people The Stride Center serves.
The Stride Center is a non-profit that empowers individuals and communities in the San Francisco Bay Area. The organization harnesses the power of technology to help men, women, and families who face barriers to employment attain self-sufficiency.
We love that The Stride Center doesn’t just train its students in IT – it prepares them in every aspect for a new career. Entelo employees help Stride Center students prepare for entry-level and higher-level opportunities by helping students learn how to interview more effectively, network and develop a strong “elevator pitch,” and build social profiles to best present themselves to future employers.
If you’d like to make a standalone donation to The Stride Center, we’d love that. Please visit this link.
