NuggetLove Sponsors Free IT Training for Displaced Workers

4_7lwp

At CBT Nuggets, we believe training gives people and organizations the ability to thrive. Because of this, we founded NuggetLove, the charitable arm of CBT Nuggets. NuggetLove works to connect innovative people and organizations to training and resources that helps them meet their goals. One of the ways NuggetLove gets training to those who need it is by providing free training to job seekers and those who are affected by layoffs.

Most recently, we’ve joined with Lane Workforce Partnership, the local Workforce Investment Board for Lane County, Oregon, where CBT Nuggets is headquartered.  Through Lane Workforce Partnership, we are offering six months of free access to our entire technology training library – as well as all the tools and benefits included in our subscriptions – to local displaced workers who are interested in beginning or developing an IT career.

By providing training to displaced workers in our community, we are fulfilling the mission of NuggetLove – to invest in empowerment, sustainable personal responsibility, and opportunities for continual personal growth. This effort also helps grow a strong technology workforce for our community by retaining local talent and helping individuals strengthen their skill sets.

NuggetLove also works to provide training and capacity development resources to nonprofits who build self-reliance in their community.  Our recent partners include:

  • Drop in the Bucket, which develops human-centered solutions for clean water, sanitation, gender equality, and microfinance in Uganda and South Sudan
  • Nashulai Maasai Conservancy, which works to create an educated and developed Maasai Community whose cultural practices contribute positively toward gender, wildlife conservation, social equality and respect for human rights.
