Potential Meets Opportunity. Partnering with a Purpose.
As a mission-driven individual I believe in and value partnerships with a purpose. With that being said, I am excited to highlight our partnership with Phi Theta Kappa (PTK), the premier honor society for community college students. Made of more than 3.8 million members and 1,300 chapters, PTK provides opportunities for these students to achieve their highest potential through the development of professional skills and access to career pathways.
PTK’s mission and the life-changing impact they are making for students particularly resonates with me because of our shared belief in POTENTIAL and OPPORTUNITY. Students across the country have the potential to achieve career success, but they may not always have the opportunity to do so. With an alumni community of more than 10,000 active members, we are thrilled to provide this diverse audience with pathways for launching a tech career.
One of these pathways is Revature’s newest program, PACE, which offers associate degree holders the unique opportunity to accelerate the completion of their bachelor’s degree while also launching a tech career. There is also the added benefit of prior learning assessment credits, making the completion of a bachelor’s degree very achievable.
Paid training. Accelerated bachelor’s degree. And the opportunity to work on projects for Fortune 500 organizations. To quote our CEO, Ashwin Bharath, this is “a watershed moment in technology talent enablement.”
Developing the future workforce and eliminating the tech skills gap won’t happen alone. It is through partnerships with organizations like PTK where we can expand our reach and make a more significant impact. I am proud to be a part of it and am very much looking forward to seeing the combined results of PTK and Revature’s efforts.
