In brief

In brief

  • Accenture employees Bill Klavon, Crystal Goliday and Jasmine Rogers share what drives their passion to mentor and coach students.
  • Take a look inside our programs and partnerships powering the next generation.


At the Accenture Federal Digital Studio, our team is purpose-driven to change the way the world works and lives—not just today, but in the years to come.

Our people mentor and coach the next generation of designers, developers and innovators through our Skills to Succeed programs that include summer internships and special events like Black Girls Code. These programs introduce students from underrepresented communities to careers in technology and design while providing mentorship and guidance from the Digital Studio team.

Fueling our passion

For the past three years, the Accenture Federal Digital Studio has hosted small groups of young people for two programs: Skills to Succeed and On Ramps to Careers. Through our programs, we help them develop an understanding of design and design thinking, and assist in the development and execution of compelling, human-centered ideas.

We've seen the students thrive during their time with us—creating designs for new applications, learning to speak with confidence, embracing the art of collaboration, and leaving us inspired to share what they learned with others.

Giving back

Through our partnership with On Ramps to Careers we have engaged an awesome group of kids here at the Accenture Federal Digital Studio. They learn real, transferable skills that they can translate into all aspects of their lives, be it in school, their home life or the future professional career.

These students are leaving our program with confidence and the ability to present themselves in any environment and, more importantly, the understanding that true success only happens through collaboration and diversity of thought.
