Commitment to Action

Symantec Cyber Career Connection (SC3)

Commitment by

Symantec Corporation

In 2014, Symantec Corporation committed to partner with YearUp, NPower, and LifeJourney to recruit a minimum of 45 under-served young adults (ages 18 to 29) in NYC, Baltimore, and San Jose to become educated and certified in cyber security information. Participating youth will receive an educational experience providing both hard and soft skills necessary for employment through the partner organizations. After the educational period ends, participants will apply for and interview for internships with partner organizations in each of three cities where the program will be piloted. Symantec will provide funds to support the physical classrooms, pay for the overhead and the trainers, software and hardware requirements, Symantec product, program, and internship stipends, other training materials, and provide Symantec volunteer employee trainers/mentors to assist the non-profits in achieving these goals. The total initial funding target is up to $2,000,000 per annum.
