Cary, NC, Nov. 28, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- This GivingTuesday, INE, the global leader in technical training, will inspire generations of generosity by donating a portion of its Cyber Monday and GivingTuesday profits to the Scratch Foundation, the world’s largest coding community for children. In 2021, INE contributed more than $10,000 to Scratch through its GivingTuesday initiative.
“We envision a world where organizations operate with more reliability and stability through a better-trained workforce,” said INE CEO Dara Warn. “We have been building our hands-on lab platform to help technologies build their skills. On GivingTuesday, we sharpen that focus to ensure the next generation of engineers, creators, and data scientists can realize their potential.”
This GivingTuesday, INE will donate 5% of Cyber Monday and Giving Tuesday profits from the sale of its eJPTv2 certification to the Scratch Foundation. The highly anticipated eJPTv2 certification will be released on Cyber Monday. Scratch allows young people to create digital stories, games, and animations and opens doors for a future generation of creative thinkers.
"We are grateful that INE supports our mission of providing young people all over the world with digital tools and opportunities to imagine, create, share, and learn," said Mindee Barham, Chief Philanthropy Officer and Interim Co-Executive Director at the Scratch Foundation. "Tools like the Scratch platform are key to building a generation of creative thinkers, and contributions like INE's help us keep it free for all children."
GivingTuesday is a worldwide generosity movement, unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world itself. It was launched in 2012 as a simple idea: to create a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past ten years, this idea has grown into an enormous movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.
