The C4Q is hosting an information session about their Access Code program, which teaches coding and professional skills to talented adults from diverse and low-income backgrounds for no up-front cost. Their 10-month program prepares individuals for software engineering jobs at companies like Kickstarter, Capital One, and IBM. Graduates have gone from making $18,000 to over $85,000 a year on average.
The upcoming Access Code program will teach Android app development, iOS app development, and Full-Stack Web development. They are selecting 144 students for the this coming year. They will offer both a daytime as well as a nights and weekends schedule. To create a diverse tech community that’s representative of NYC, cohorts will be at least 50% women, 50% underrepresented minorities, 50% immigrants, and 60% do not have college degrees.
The application deadline is Friday, June 30th.
