Most people get into high tech via hard work, thoughtful mentors and good schools. But while techies exist in every school, not every school has the ability to train them for quality high-tech jobs. We are really proud of the partnership we have with Resilient Coders, an organization founded by David Delmar to teach coding skills to urban youth. This awesome non-profit works to train youth in underserved communities how to code through a series of programs that range from boot camps on web development fundamentals through to their Resilient Lab, where coders have the opportunity to work on actual customer projects.
Data Collaborative was great at understanding our "organizing jargon" and making a tool that fit our advocacy work.
