Program Model

Three Components
Education. Exposure. Experience. 


We offer FREE, after-school coding courses taught by qualified, tech industry professionals. No prior coding experience required. All classes are hands-on and project based in order to build portfolios. Our students participate in 9 months of classes in order to qualify for a paid, technical internship.

We prepare and place our high school students into paid, technical internships with our Visionary Partners. This invaluable experience not only provides our students with an income while still in high school, but also improves their candidacy for 4-year undergraduate programs, STEM major completion and eventual entry into a STEM career.
