All Star Code: Tech Training for Sophomore and Junior Young Men of Color

February 13, 2017 Connor Smith Events Gallery, Q2L at Large
All Star Code is a nonprofit that prepares young Black and Latino men for tech careers by providing mentorship, industry exposure, and training in Computer Science. Our flagship program, the Summer Intensive, is a FREE six week program designed to give high school boys the access and exposure they need to become successful tech entrepreneurs. Through real-world experiences at top tech companies, and hands-on, project-based learning, All Stars finish the program with both coding skills and an entrepreneurial mindset.
 
The 2017 Summer Intensive application is live as of Wednesday, February 1, 2017. Interested students can learn more by visiting http://www.allstarcode.org/apply/. Deadline is Monday, March 6th at 11:59pm.
 
Coming up soon is the first annual All Star Con on Wednesday, February 22nd, from 3:00pm to 7:00pm. Potential applicants can come to meet our alumni, see demos of the coding skills they’ll learn in the Summer Intensive, and check out some of the tech companies who partner with us. Snacks will be served and computers will be set up for students to complete Part 1 of our application. Find details and RSVP at: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/all-star-con-tickets-31760691082.
