Per Scholas receives NFL’s Inspiring Change grant

A Brooklyn nonprofit organization is one of 13 partners that will receive grant funding as part of the NFL’s Inspiring Change social justice initiative.

Per Scholas, which has an office in the Broadway Triangle area, provides skills training and access to employer networks for people often excluded from tech careers through no-cost technical training.

The nonprofit will use its Inspire Change grant to enroll 220 people into their software engineering courses, a 15-week, full-time training program that includes technical instruction and professional development to advance economic equality.

Since 2018, the NFL has provided more than $95 million in support of programs focused on education, economic advancement, police and community relations, and criminal justice reform.
