Mission Statement

Pursuit creates transformation where it's needed most. Through our long-term intensive program, we train adults with the most need and potential to get their first tech jobs, advance in their careers, and become the next generation of leaders in tech. Our graduates are hired by leading companies like Pinterest, Kickstarter, LinkedIn, BlackRock, and JPMorgan Chase, and increase their average annual salaries from $18,000 to over $85,000.


Based in the New York metro area, Pursuit is an innovative social impact organization whose mission is to create transformation where it’s needed most. Our work builds pathways to lucrative, long-term tech careers for diverse, low-income, high-potential adults by providing supportive training as well as solutions to systemic barriers in workforce development. On average, Fellows increase their income from $18,000 to nearly $90,000, and work at over 300 companies, including Citi, Uber, and Amazon.

Fellows begin their journey with a full year of high-quality, intensive, and supportive training, followed by three years of career development once they’ve been hired. Pursuit also works directly with companies to secure hiring commitments, which results in equitable employment practices, better job conditions, and on-the-job support. To ensure our program is sustainable and scalable, we have also created a revolutionary funding mechanism that allows us to tap into both philanthropic capital as well as impact investor funding.
