The Muggle-world is in the midst of an innovation revolution. New devices, applications and other innovations are being created every day…almost like magic.
But there is one group that is getting left behind in learning the skills to “cast” that magic: increasing professional access and STEM education for young men of color is vital to the overall future of the tech sector as well as minority communities.
Hogwarts Running Club is pleased to announce that the charity partner for Event #5 is All Star Code!
All Star Code is a nonprofit computer science education organization focused on giving young, intelligent, driven men of color access to necessary skills so they can be part of the growing tech world. Few organizations prepare this underserved group for careers in innovations and technology, but All Star Code is focused on their futures. They host a 6-week Summer Intensive program (160 young men in 2018)that gives young men of color the computer science skills and confidence they need to kick start a future in technology and innovation. The program is divided into 20-student “cohorts” that get absolutely top-notch instruction from experts…and it’s completely free for the students.
HRC’s goal is to fund an entire “cohort” of 20 young men of color so they can complete All Star Code’s Summer Intensive Program in 2019. We can only accomplish this goal with your help! Check back tomorrow, July 21, at noon EDT for the launch of our fifth event of 2018. Sign up, and help 20 young men reach for their dreams!
