State Farm Lends Support to Train Individuals in Tech

BATON ROUGE, LA – As technology becomes the cornerstone of the future, the need for bridging the digital divide grows more critical. State Farm Insurance, supporting initiatives that elevate the communities it lives and works in, selected The Futures Fund program to receive a $10,000 grant to advance technology training to those who normally are unable to access it.

“For the past 100 years, State Farm has been making a positive difference in communities where we live and work,” stated State Farm Corporate Responsibility Analyst, Felicia Hutchins. “We like, The Walls Project, believe technology is the future and helping Louisianians develop the skills to succeed not only helps the students but impacts all of the community as well.”

Futures Fund offers Web Development and Coding training to youth and adults in the 10-parish region and beyond. A program of The Walls Project, this opportunity creates a pathway for anyone to pursue careers in the emerging creative and tech sectors. Working directly with future employers and industry professionals, the curriculum offers in-depth training on the baseline languages of HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript. Graduates are able to take two industry-based certifications based on the content learned.

Classes are held throughout the year, following a traditional school semester schedule (including summer sessions). Virtual and in-person options are available.

Together, State Farm and The Walls Project look to break through and tear down the societal walls that discourage or prevent people from living safe, healthy, and prosperous lives.
