Pursuit's flagship program, Access Code, is a 10-month software development program that trains talented adults from underserved populations (including un/under-employed, non-college graduates, women, African Americans, Latino/as and immigrants) to become industry-ready programmers.
Arbor Rising partnered with the Pursuit management team on a number of key deliverables, including:
- Theory of Change — clarifying the population served, type of intervention, and target outcomes
- Financial Model — to monitor fundraising progress, create multiyear budget projections, and track key programmatic outcomes
- Financing Vehicles — “pay for success” opportunities for investors and program alumni to underwrite training costs
- Performance Dashboard – which established high-level goals and accountability targets for staff
