About Us

As the philanthropic arm of CompTIA, the Creating IT Futures Foundation provides educational, training, and certification opportunities in the Information Technology (IT) field to those who are lacking opportunity and need an upwardly mobile career. We particularly encourage an IT path for populations that traditionally have been under-represented in the information technology workforce, such as women and ethnic minorities.

The Creating IT Futures Foundation is registered as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization with the IRS.

The Creating IT Futures Foundation and its inaugural Network Partner, Per Scholas, have developed a free education, training and career placement program called IT-Ready which gives people the knowledge and skills they need for a successful IT career, then connects them to an on-the-job experience opportunity. IT-Ready not only focuses on the "hard" technical skills, but on the "soft" professional skills as well that employers look for in a worker.
