Success Sharing Program


You can learn more about the different components of the program at https://www.flockjay.com, including how the Success Sharing Program works. We ask learners who land a new job related to their Learning Program - and who make above a salary threshold - to give a small portion of their future earnings for twelve months to ensure that others can also benefit from the Flockjay opportunity.




We strongly believe that people should not have to face decades of debt misaligned with their career outcomes.  We thus bear the complete financial risk of educating learners with the skills we know that employers need. If you do not get a job above a salary threshold as a result of our program, you will not owe anything for your professional and technical training. More info at https://flockjay.com.
