Episode 188: The Knowledge House – Jerelyn Rodriguez



This week’s episode of The 1 Girl Revolution Podcast features Jerelyn Roriquez, CEO and co-founder of The Knowledge House. The Knowledge House (TKH) is a nonprofit organization founded in 2014 that works to close the gaps in the education­-to-­employment pipeline by leading digital skills training in coding and design for underserved young people. TKH started in the Bronx, but in 2021 they expanded their programming to serve young people in Newark, Atlanta, and Los Angeles – and they continue to expand and grow. 

 

TKH combines technology training, career support, and a comprehensive network of partners to help disconnected job seekers secure rewarding careers in the tech economy and become financially independent. TKH aims to lift entire communities out of poverty by creating a pipeline of talented and capable workers equipped with the technology and skills that provide economic opportunity, living wages, and career mobility.

 

Nationwide, there are 531,200 new technology jobs, with a projected growth of 11% over the next decade. Nearly half of these positions do not require college degrees. With tech sector jobs increasing exponentially yearly, there is now an unprecedented opportunity for traditionally underrepresented populations to enter these career pathways. There is a critical need for job training and workforce development programming to ensure underserved young people are not left behind.
