Travis County is a long-time investor in Capital IDEA. Funds from Travis County are given to allow Capital IDEA to deliver services that help individuals improve workplace skills, obtain employment, succeed in the workplace, and help employers secure a skilled workforce.
In 2016, Travis County increased their engagement with a decision to host interns in their IT Department. This commitment made Travis County one of Capital IDEA’s first employer partners to host a Career Expressway Tech student, a pilot program launched in 2015.
