Hesperus provides pathways to education and employment for members of rural and tribal communities. We are dedicated to supporting underserved tribal populations, with a focus on veterans, including Native American Veterans and their families, and creating educational and employment opportunities across the United States through skills training, workforce development, and technology.
Our vision is a country where every Native American and Alaska Native can connect to inexpensive broadband services, and through that digital access have the opportunity to train and work in the technology jobs of the 21st century no matter where they are in the United States.
We are launching our first education project, the Summit Program, in 2021. The Summit Program is an IT training program, in partnership with National University, for Native American Veterans focusing on training transitioning service members and veterans for entry level jobs in the IT industry. The program includes tuition, equipment, and mentorship to educate, employ, and transition Native American Veterans as they enter the IT sector.
