UPO Inspire

Organization: United Planning Organization

We seek to improve the career trajectory for the smart, the motivated, and unfortunately, the often overlooked talent in Washington DC

Through technology training, UPO Inspire aims to improve the career prospects of locals residents who are committed to pursuing a path towards sustainability. Because when people work their way out of poverty, good things happen. Positive contributions to society. Local businesses have access to top rated technical skills. It's a win-win.

The UPO Inspire Technology Training Initiative is designed to increase middle-skill job opportunities for those on the edge of poverty. This program attempts to close this opportunity gap by funding job training and support for underemployed individuals. Our students undergo comprehensive well-rounded IT training covering help desk support, technical professional development, and career and social coaching. 32 weeks in duration (at a minimum) combining in-class sessions and internships, students receive their CompTIA A+ certification upon successful completion.
