Project Quest's partnership with Rackspace has already resulted in the graduation of dozens of lower income people from the Open Cloud Academy. Project Quest played a pivotal role in recruiting and supporting these students, implementing best practices developed by West / Southwest IAF labor market intermediaries.
The White House recognized the City of San Antonio for already investing $400 thousand into Project Quest to recruit and train 200 workers with Rackspace. This recognition builds on the $6 Million US Department of Labor grant recently awarded to Quest to train people for IT jobs.
