We are Emergent Works.
Black and Latinx people make up 32% of the US population and 50% of the prison population, but only 15% of the tech workforce.
Emergent Works interrupts the prison cycle by creating pathways into high-paying jobs in technology for formerly incarcerated people.
We are a nonprofit software company that trains and employs formerly incarcerated people.
Through our client projects, our formerly incarcerated apprentices get valuable paid work experience to kickstart their careers in tech.
Donations support our work.
Donations help us cover our program costs: instructors, space, food, learning supplies, hardware, software, and MetroCards. You can also support our students by donating gently used laptops!
As a volunteer-run organization, less than 5% of funds are spent on administrative costs.Donate Now
