The partnership will support efforts to break the cycle of generational poverty.
Lafayette, Colorado (October 22, 2020)—bulb Digital Portfolios, the leader in digital portfolio software education, is honored to partner with TechBridge, Inc. a 20-year old non-profit based in Atlanta, Georgia, whose goal is to break the cycle of generational poverty through the innovative use of technology to transform nonprofit and community impact.
TechBridge applies its solutions, collaborative community programs and direct services in four specific areas: Hunger Relief, Homeless Support, Social Justice, and Workforce Development. bulb is working directly with the TechBridge team to address the fourth pillar – Workforce Development. TechBridge’s Technology Career Program (TCP) is a free 16-week program, focused on providing underserved and under-skilled adults with the opportunity to enter the technology industry, by helping them obtain coveted technical certifications, from partners like Microsoft.
TechBridge also partners with Goodwill of North Georgia and the local business community, to provide students with life support and business skills. TechBridge’s partnership with bulb has helped to greatly improve the TCP student experience by providing digital portfolios to every participant in the program.
Andrew Cary, Sr. VP, Strategy & Partnerships at bulb, said, "bulb is excited to partner with and support the mission of TechBridge. Their work with young people and adults alike in the areas of workforce development and access to greater opportunities is essential. Our ability to provide the digital portfolio experience where individuals can create resumes, curate their learning and share and showcase their best work, is a perfect fit."
The addition of this technology will empower these students as they demonstrate competencies, showcase achieved skills, share applicable experiences, and present their best selves for job opportunities and career advancement. “Our partnership with bulb has been transformative for our TCP students. With the use of their personalized digital portfolio, TCP students now have the opportunity to tell their full story utilizing a “digital diary”. Their digital diary will travel with them and evolve, as they navigate their professional careers”, said Nicole Armstrong CEO of TechBridge.
bulb looks forward to working with this outstanding organization. As TechBridge continues to expand their reach into more communities, bulb will be a proud partner, ready to provide the education technology to those they serve, with the purpose of making real, effective change in breaking the cycle of generational poverty.
