CompTIA Gets Baseball Grant For Vets
Major League Baseball, along with the McCormick Foundation, last week presented a $210,000 donation to the CompTIA Educational Foundation, in order to assist with the foundation's outreach to disabled veterans.
The effort, which CompTIA calls the Creating Futures program, is aimed towards providing training and certification to populations in need, among them disabled veterans. It teaches skills to returning veterans in order to encourage them to pursue careers in the industry.
"With this generous grant, Creating Futures can help more disabled veterans become employed in the IT industry," CompTIA Educational Foundation's president/CEO, John Venator, said as part of the announcement. "Our Armed Forces help prepare these brave men and women to handle any situation. Now with IT training and certification provided by Creating Futures, veterans can become incredibly valuable employees for the government and private technology sectors."
