Residences designed to make the everyday extraordinary.

 

In GA alone, there are over 20,000 open computer programming positions with an average annual salary of about $85K, and Atlanta is ranked as the 6th fastest growing start up city in the country. However, even with a 46.7% increase in total tech industry employment in the past five years, less than 6% of Atlanta's public schools offer classes in computer programming. This is a huge opportunity to train our future workforce, and at honorCode we think we've cracked the code on how to do this quickly and effectively.

 

honorCode is a non-profit social enterprise whose purpose is to empower schools to build the capacity for tomorrow's world. We provide curriculum and training to schools to bring more web-development into the general K12 classroom. We thought, "How could we best provide the skill of coding to the next generation?" And the answer was apparent to the our Founder and CEO, Jeffrey Martín: we weave coding into public education. By leveraging existing organizational infrastructure, honorCode can provide more coding to more students than traditional coding education organizations. By the end of our first year of operation, we will have affected more than 1400 students and armed 40 teachers with the power to infuse coding into their classrooms. 

We do this through direct instruction to teachers in the form of professional development, and direct instructions to students in the general classroom and through after school programming. We are currently partnered with Charles R. Drew Charter Schools so that we can refine our services to help Atlanta and beyond.
