Per Scholas in the news



Crain's New York Business profiled Plinio Ayala, President and CEO of our Jobs to Build On partner Per Scholas, which provides job training and job placement to New Yorkers who want to join the growing IT sector.

"It used to be that, 10 or 20 years ago, if you graduated from college, you had an implied promise that you would get a good job," says Ayala. "That’s not true anymore.
