The Knowledge House Launches 2023 Recruitment Tour At Boys & Girls Club of Harlem

April 15, 2023

The Knowledge House (TKH) will host their first in-person recruitment series since the pandemic from Harlem to Hollywood.

Launching mid-April 2023 through the beginning of May, the organization will host four (4) in-person recruitment events to reach more Black and Brown people ages 16 – 36 interested in technology.

The Recruitment Tour, with generous partnership support by UBER, will take place within each city where they have successful programming – New York City, Newark, Atlanta, and Los Angeles. 

“Every city we serve has a unique culture and connection to the tech sector, and low-income Black and Brown young people across the nation are all eager for opportunities and ready to learn. Since the pandemic we’ve been virtual, but now that technologists are back to hybrid work so are we. I am beyond excited as The Knowledge House continues to build its presence in New York and kick off a second year in our expansion sites in-person and alongside community mainstays. This season I look forward to increasing more awareness of our Fellowships and entreating local support in our new cities for our incoming class,” Antoinette Gregg, Associate Director of Development and External Affairs.

The 2023-24 Recruitment Tour will welcome up to 250 new fellows into our leading programs – The Karim Kharbouch Coding Program for teens and Innovation Fellowship for adult jobseekers. Despite the growth of America’s tech sector, less than 10% of tech positions are held by people of color – a distribution that does not reflect our nation. As The Knowledge House continues to solidify a larger national presence, the need for digital upskilling has become more apparent and critical. 

The Knowledge House provides direct access for job seekers to participate in free technical job training, connect with industry professionals, secure certifications and find suitable employment. TKH participant experiences range from college stop-out, trade schools, career pivoters, CUNY grads, and more. TKH provides holistic training and support, including cash stipends, career development, technical upskilling, and on-the-job training.
