This December, code for a cause by joining Flatiron School’s first annual Code Drive – a week-long coding marathon benefiting refugees.

Around the world, there are 22.5 million refugees. These refugees contend with hunger, homelessness, and extreme poverty – as well as a disruption in their work and education – as they attempt to piece their lives back together. That’s where coding can come in to help. For these refugees, an in-demand professional skill such as coding can help them regain their economic stability.

Through Code Drive 2017, you can work toward your own programming goals while helping provide full scholarships to refugees seeking better lives through code. It’s free to get involved – you commit to coding and we’ll match the number of lessons you complete in scholarship dollars.

The details:

  • 7-day coding marathon: December 11 through 17, 2017

  • Each coding lesson completed = $1 for refugees

  • Use any Flatiron School curriculum (including free courses like Bootcamp Prep!)

    Building on our partnership with Re:Coded, we’re thrilled to expand our commitment to refugees through Code Drive 2017 and invite our entire community to get involved – whether you’re a complete beginner, a current student, or an experienced alum. Together, we can make a difference through code.
