Grant #11: David – Resilient Coders
David founded Resilient Coders to teach underserved and at-risk young people how to code, that is, how to build websites and other software. His goal? To connect high performers to stable careers and increase diversity in the tech sector. This grant for $5,250 will allow two of their best students to attend Startup Institute, an eight-week bootcamp (Last year, Micah got to go – you can see his story here). At Startup Institute, these students will take the skills they’ve learned at Resilient Coders to the next level, enabling them to refine their coding skills and providing access to mentors, hiring partners through networking events, and soft skills training.
