Resilient Coders – Call for Support

I am excited to be working with Resilient Coders, a deeply impactful non-profit that is equipping young people, ages 18 to 26, with skills for careers in tech.

Resilient Coders has had great success with their Bootcamp model, graduating 21 youth from an intensive, 7-week immersive environment in 2016 in which they learned HTML, responsive CSS, JavaScript, jQuery, and Git, as a way of launching a new career path. Their youth are getting hired! This is the ultimate testament to the training and experience they’ve received in the program. Boston University, The Boston Globe, The Grommet, and Colaberry have all hired Resilient Coders youth.

The model has been so successful that they want to replicate the model for Dev Ops and Automation (I am sponsoring this at CTP). The demand is there. The urgent need to hire entry level employees is there. Students are interested and CloudTP is ready to hire.

Help me support Resilient Coders in the launch of a Dev Ops Bootcamp in 2017. It costs $5,000 to put a student through Resilient Coders Bootcamp, which includes their stipend. That’s about a third the industry standard. Only $75,000 to run a Bootcamp that will prepare 15 young people from traditionally underserved communities for a career in tech. When they get jobs that pay $50,000+ we’ll have created $750,000 of economic value for these young people!
