Workforce Development: Closing the loop
The next wave of technology will bring about a tremendous amount of new applications, innovation and services. Sky Packets believes that this new wave opens the door for new kind of workforce, in particular those who have traditional lived in under service communities.
Sky Packets has partnered with community groups like the Red Hook Initiative, New America and Silicon Harlem to help develop and employee digital stewards/digital ambassadors. Ambassadors go through an intensive internship with the community group, learning a series of technical skills, with Sky Packets closing the loop and hiring those that have made it through the program.
Over the past two years, we have helped bridge the digital divide by incorporating and partnering with those most in need. In the process, digital stewards and digital community ambassadors have a direct and unique relationship with the technology they are helping to design, maintain and support.
