Noble Schools is bolstering its efforts to ensure the success of its alumni through a wide range of initiatives, including a partnership with technology company RiseKit. The new partnership will allow Noble to create a trackable and streamlined system to better connect with former students and help its more than 20,000 alumni with college and job readiness.
“Our alumni, in many ways, are feeling the effects of a market still adversely impacted by the coronavirus pandemic,” said Solomon Dixon, Director of Alumni Careers at Noble Schools. “However, our Alumni Career Office exists to positively impact their employment outcomes. This partnership with RiseKit will ultimately help many first-generation college graduates and underemployed individuals receive the customized assistance they need most.”
Through Noble’s Alumni Career Office, RiseKit will assist with alumni engagement and help alumni build career pathways. RiseKit’s software will also help the office staff increase their overall capacity.
“As a Chicago-based company, RiseKit is honored to partner with a local company that is making a national impact,” said Matt Strauss, CEO at RiseKit, “We are honored that more than 20,000 young adults will be able to enhance their career journey through our innovative software.”

This new partnership is not the only way Noble is working to provide opportunities for its alumni, though.
In addition to the newfound relationship with RiseKit, Noble has been forming further partnerships with various local organizations interested in taking in alumni for summer internships that will immerse them in the workplace and provide them with early, first hand experience in their career field of interest. During the winter season, Noble launches its annual Winter Externship Program geared toward achieving the same results.
