We Can Code IT Celebrates Six Years of Championing Social Equity Through Technology
Six years ago today We Can Code IT held its first coding bootcamp session. Our first cohort taught us many things and set the foundation for the core values we adhere to at We Can Code IT today. WCCI began in 2013 focusing heavily on community outreach. In 2015, we held our very first cohort with 8 students. Since then our cohorts have grown in size with more students looking to find their start in software development.
Over the years we have witnessed so many individuals come through our program and graduate with the confidence to begin a new chapter in a new career. With each cohort each individual has taught us how to improve and become the best at what we do, for that we are thankful. We applaud our students and our team for being a great example of bridging the gap in tech. Though so much has evolved since the first day of our very first cohort in 2015, the foundation and intention of what we do has always remained the same. “Championing social equity through technology.”
In the years to come, we will continue to strive towards our goal of graduating 10,000 students with 70% of them being underrepresented individuals in tech. We are proud and honored to do the work we do.
