Re: Learn mobile app development or volunteer to teach code at a local high school

If you're interested in expanding your coding toolkit:

Coalition for Queens (C4Q) is launching Access Code 2.0, an intensive 9-month part-time program in mobile app development that prepares participants with no prior coding experience for entry-level developer jobs. C4Q is an organization whose mission is to expand access to tech opportunities. The application is open until April 3 (http://www.c4q.nyc/accesscode#application) and classes will start April 25. For more information: http://www.c4q.nyc/accesscode or contact Aliya Merali (aliya at c4q.nyc<mailto:aliya at c4q.nyc>).

(An information session will be held tonight, March 30, at 7pm, at the C4Q headquarters in Long Island City: http://www.c4q.nyc/accesscode#questions)

If you're interested in sharing your coding skills with others:

Girls Who Code Clubs is seeking volunteers to teach at a club in a local high school. Applications are open for clubs that will launch in fall 2015. Volunteers receive training and support from an interactive community of advisors, and get the chance to participate in a nation-wide project to empower young women in computer science and transform tech into a more inclusive industry. To learn more: http://www.girlswhocode.com/clubs or contact Emily Smith (emily.smith at girlswhocode.com<mailto:emily.smith at girlswhocode.com>).
