what we do & how it works

rewirED provides a pathway for traditionally excluded populations to choose careers and access higher education through programs that leverage cutting edge curriculum and prepare students for today’s job market. Our cost effective online competency based degree model allows for significant and cost-effective scaling.

What we do

In rewirED, learners have the choice to pursue a variety of educational and employment pathways

rewirED partners with students to prepare for the HiSET exam and gain high school equivalency credentials as the first step to continued studies or employment programs.

rewirED places eligible learners into paid internships and apprenticeships to gain marketable skills and professional competencies. Participants are motivated by increasing monthly stipends and the potential for Learn & Earn experiences to turn into full-time jobs.

rewirED enrols learners in short courses for high-demand skills such as computer programming, blockchain, entrepreneurship and cybersecurity. Students earn stackable credits for each course which they can choose to transfer into a degree program at any time.

rewirED supports learners in completing an online competency based Associate of Arts degree. In the degree, students complete projects that prepare them for real-world employment scenarios.

rewirED enables AA graduates to complete an online competency based Bachelor of Arts degree. During their studies, students are provided supplementary academic tutoring, mental health counselling, and career guidance.

Populations served

rewirED seeks to bring access to employment and higher education to traditionally excluded populations around the world.

rewirED prison initiative 

rewirED aims to disrupt mass incarceration through three approaches:

Through generous seed funding from The Amalgam Foundation, rewirED will offer services to incarcerated and formerly incarcerated populations in the State of New York.

The Amalgam Foundation strives to make a positive impact on the world via blockchain technology, STEM education, scholarship funds, financial literacy initiatives, grants, philanthropic contributions, partnerships and more.

In working alongside incarcerated students – one of the most disenfranchised learner populations in the world – rewirED seeks to build an inclusive and adaptive model that works for anyone, anywhere, that isn’t currently served by the traditionally rigid structures of higher education.
