IBM is working to close the skills gap through its innovative P-TECH educational program, a six-year tech initiative that begins in the ninth grade and continues for two years after high school. In addition to in-class training, each student gets a mentor and workplace experiences. Students also have access to internships, and they’re first in line for job interviews once they graduate from the program.
