PLANO, Texas, Nov. 21, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- TrainUp.com recently announced that a portion of every course registration will benefit the students of New Horizons of North Texas. New Horizons is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to helping at-risk children and youth in Dallas achieve their full potential. Their afterschool learning communities provide 8 hours of mentoring, reading, and homework support each week to each child and emphasize core values of honesty, integrity, and personal responsibility. Through their initiatives and support from TrainUp.com, some of the most vulnerable members of the community are provided with the opportunity to choose a different course for their lives.
For TrainUp.com CEO Jeremy Tillman, the choice to partner with New Horizons was an easy one. "Last year, I had a chance to speak to the students at one of the local schools where New Horizons serves, and I couldn't help but think of how much they reminded me of myself and my story. Not that long ago I was right where many of these kids were, dealing with some of the same issues. Issues of poverty, substance abuse in my family and community, and being raised in a single parent home. What made the difference in my life and those of my brothers and sisters, all of whom went on to attend college, was the support of my mother, the community, and afterschool programs just like this one. Their values and program align 100% with our vision to empower growth and shape the future of learning."
TrainUp.com helps fulfill this initiative in its day-to-day organization through corporate education and training solutions. TrainUp.com is the web's largest career training marketplace, listing training courses in over 150 categories including business skills, leadership, information technology, finance, and human resources. Training sessions are available live (in classroom or virtual), self-paced online via eLearning, or customized right at your office. Therefore, the opportunities to give back are endless.
