Use real-world technologies to learn the fundamentals of coding.

The Code Collective

In partnership with the Collective Blueprint and the support of the NBA Foundation, CodeCrew is launching a unique wraparound program designed to provide additional supports to young adults as they train to be entry-level software developers within a comprehensive nine-month course. Students work in a small classroom setting and use real-world technologies to learn the fundamentals of coding and system development, while also participating in specialized training focused on the leadership and the life skills needed for a successful career and job market competitiveness.

While in the program, participants will receive training for success, coaching, a stipend ($400/month), and transportation assistance. Placed graduates of CodeCrew Code School have average salaries of more than $51,000 per year.
