Since 1999, i.c.stars has been identifying, training, and jump-starting technology careers for low-income young adults who, although lacking access to education and employment, demonstrate extraordinary potential for success in the business world and for impact in their communities. With the support of their anchor sponsor, Dohmen Company Foundation, i.c.stars launched in the Milwaukee market in 2018 and has been thriving ever since. i.c.stars uses a technology-based curriculum that combines project-based training with a broader perspective on community impact, where participants learn by building web-based applications to solve client challenges – with coding, business, and leadership instruction provided along the way.
