Engaging Exerceo – Public and Private Grantors
For over a decade, the organization now known as Exerceo (Latin for train, practice, cultivate) has helped develop the skills and experience of hundreds of people looking to take advantage of the growing field of information technologies, specifically, software development and systems administration. The benefit has been an increase in hirable junior IT professionals for the local IT community and Exerceo IT Program sponsors. Exerceo's success, and more importantly, its participants' success is directly related to creating a professionally nurturing environment conducive to learning well beyond academic curriculum of learning institutions and traditional training programs. Participants are developed into team members, mentors and engaged members of the organization – in other words, better employees – while acquiring the skills and knowledge they need to be an immediate contributors.
The "secret" of Exerceo's success is no secret at all. Originally designed by Co-founder Brian Walsh, "Cultivation" is a 6-step, "open source" practical approach to attracting, identifying, and mentoring tomorrow's workplace superstars by immersing them in a positive, collaborative and empowering environment that encourages learning and career development. It is the center-point and hallmark of all Exerceo programs, as it can be any organization’s recruiting and employee development efforts. But Cultivation is not a short-term tactic; it is long-term strategy that really ties to the culture and priorities of the organization.
As of 2016, Exerceo has trained and worked with over 500 people learn and progress careers in the IT field. It has been a labor of love of one benefactor and a handful of very dedicated volunteers.
