Mission

 

The Learners Lab Foundation, is a charitable foundation headquartered in Lanham, Maryland, staffed with volunteers. We operate a Technical Assistance Service Center (TASC), design & manage a portfolio of Charitable Programs that provides Workforce Training, Job Hunter & Employer Recruiting Assistance, and we serve as a Fiscal Sponsor for start-up, young, and future 501c3 tax exempt entities or programs.  Our operations are totally centralized with open-access to individuals, groups, and employers nationwide. At Full capacity, service delivery will be virtual and on-site at the brick-n-mortar facility we hope will be located in Prince Georges County, Maryland.

The Foundation awards Non-Monetary Grants, Complimentary Memberships, & Complimentary Fiscal Sponsorships as resources permit.  We are amassing a dynamic portfolio of partnerships with peer organizations, vendors, interested parties and other stakeholders assisting us in delivering or creating access to resources unavailable to those who need them. And we are forever grateful, thank you.

History

 

A dream of more than 20 years in the making, The Learners Lab Foundation was originally established in 2002 following a multi-year pilot project providing online students and instructors with telnet access to a private network of personal software. ED-Lab Online was IT was poised to the first online service of and support structure to deliver what cloud computing now does. It was its Founders first charitable gap eliminating resource ahead of its time.

Resurrected in 2012 as it own entity, The Learners Lab Foundation with the help of virtual teams of interns, developers, content managements, business/consulting volunteers, relentless works to connect free and low cost business, training, and operations services, helping young companies get started, and supporting small, young, or new mom & pop operations, and assure anyone wanting to learn a job skill can do so. The true goal, however, remains focused on closing resource gaps for tax exempt entities, and eliminating workforce training obstacles that simply should not exist for a 21st century workforce.

The Learners Lab Foundation is eligible to receive tax deductible bequest, devises, transfers and gifts under section 2055, 2106, and 2522 of the IRS Tax Code.
