Code Now's coding workshops are designed to help minority high school groups like females, African Americans and Hispanics find success in the field of tech. According to recent stats, only 18 percent of American Computer Science grads were female while a mere 11 and 9 percent were revealed to be those of African American and Hispanic descent.
Aiming to put an end to this pattern, Code Now offers nation-wide coding workshops that target minorities while giving inner city kinds access to the one-of-a-kind program. In addition to raising the number of female, African American and Hispanic tech professionals and grads, the foundation has also gained presidential praise -- top Code Now students had the opportunity to meet president Obama -- since its 2011 inception.
Breaking barriers, foundations like these encourage tech education among minority groups and aim to change stereotypes that are associated with the industry's related fields.
