H.O.P.E. Is Real!

The H.O.P.E. Project is an information technology (IT) training program dedicated to providing technical training and development for young adults. Our IT training program is designed to prepare students for entry-level positions as helpdesk and application support professionals.

The H.O.P.E. Project & Kesem Technology

The H.O.P.E. Project trains primarily minority young men and women – with little or no IT background – to work in the IT field. Participants are prepared for internships with technology firms in the DC area by:

SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETING THEIR TECHNICAL TRAINING

EARNING A COMPTIA A+ OR NETWORK+ CERTIFICATION

COMPLETING FOUR WEEKS OF SOFT-SKILLS TRAINING

Kesem Technology hosts interns for 12 weeks at a time, providing real-world experience via on-the-job training. We offer mentoring and advice or assistance to these students as they progress in their careers. We also provide accurate assessments and references for these students during their job placement efforts, and on an ongoing basis if desired.

Kesem Technology also contributes current PCs, network equipment and firewalls to The H.O.P.E. Project for students to work with during their training and test preparations.
