About Us

We Employ 100% Justice Impacted Individuals

In the United States, we face a serious problem with recidivism rates upwards of 70% (National Institute of Justice). Persevere, a national non-profit and Banyan Labs partner, is solving this problem as an education and training program to help educate people reentering society.

Banyan Labs was created out of the need to place Persevere graduates into jobs through an on-the-job training program. Persevere teaches justice-involved individuals how to code and certifies them with six industry-recognized certifications, including Full Stack Developer. Banyan Labs hires these technology graduates, offering them mentoring from experienced technology partners, and teaching them how to excel on cross-functional development teams.

In order to address “the ways we think about prison and how that can change prison,” the focus must be on how we think about prisoners and prison staff, and employing the most advanced and scientifically-proven methods for creating sustainable behavior change in both. Professionals, or Pros, should be the only ones dealing with Convicts, or Cons. We need to support and develop the Pros in order to be able to change the Cons.

A Unique Perspective

Banyan Labs receives some of our certified developers immediately after experiencing incarceration as they are reentering society. These employees have proven themselves to be exceptionally talented, adaptable, and full of gratitude. We provide housing, insurance, transportation, and other services to address their major determinants of success as they begin building a meaningful and lucrative career.

Our commitment to our employees goes hand in hand with creating exceptional products for clients and cultivating lasting professional relationships with partners. We seize opportunities to change the lives of our employees through work—the marriage of stories and technology, people working together as they strive for something better, this is our vision.

A Unique Solution

Like the Banyan tree, whose seeds get their start by growing on another plant, we employ people affected by the justice system, giving them a new community where they can thrive. Banyan Labs employees elevate their own lives while contributing valuable time and critical skills to turn in exceptional work for our clients.
