Since the start of the pandemic, the Bronx now has the highest rate of unemployment and young people are affected the most. It is critical for The Knowledge House to expand its digital training program and enhanced supportive services to include cash assistance, laptops and internet access, and mentors. Together, we can make a historic investment in the Bronx and reverse traditional patterns of racial and educational disparities.
This fall, The Knowledge House is launching a public campaign to raise $500,000 to fund 100 aspiring Black and Brown technologists from the Bronx on their journey to economic independence.
Supporters can donate by purchasing event tickets or donating any amount towards the campaign. All event proceeds go directly towards supporting our fellows.
Featuring Wes Moore, CEO of Robin Hood Foundation & Asahi Pompey, President of the Goldman Sachs Foundation.

TKH is seeking partners to stand with us and empower young Black and Brown New Yorkers to become independent and engaged citizens. Your sponsorship will help to ensure that Bronx youth & young adults are afforded the opportunity to receive free technology education that will place them in better positions to receive well paying jobs and to advance in their current career field. To become a sponsor please email Derrick Stroman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
By making a contribution today, you can give a young person from the Bronx the opportunity to pursue a meaningful and rewarding career that will change the course of their life forever.
