Persevere is a national non-profit organization whose mission is to empower justice-involved men and women and individuals at risk for justice involvement to succeed as productive members of society. We do this by helping them develop the skills they need to be employable within the technology industry, either as employees or entrepreneurs, and helping them find jobs in the field. Our goal is to change lives through education, mentoring, and ongoing support.
Our primary goal is to teach computer coding to our participants, so that when they are released, they are equipped with the certifications of a full-stack developer, one of the most sought-after positions in the tech industry. Outside of our coding classes, however, we are hard at work providing additional services so that they are able to maintain employment, a stable family life, sobriety, and a socially responsible mindset. In order to make this happen, we rely on a number of programs and people, and we welcome you into our efforts to help change lives.
