I am looking for a pitch deck for a computer coding program our organization operates for middle and high school youth. The name of the program is Newark Kids Code (NewarkKidsCode.org), and it is designed to create the next generation of software engineers and use coding to teach youth to be creative thinkers and problem solvers. One of the program participant's parent works for a large corporation and discussed support for the program with his superior who expressed interest.
There will continue to be an explosion of coding jobs in New Jersey and the country. However these opportunities will continue to be out of reach for Newark youth because 95% of the public school teachers in Newark do not know how to code. We use computer science students from the New Jersey Institute of Technology as coding instructors and high school students from the surrounding suburban area who are proficient coders.
Our Mission is to assist African-Americans and other disadvantaged urban residents in the achievement of social and economic equality. The Urban League of Essex County implements it mission through program services, bridge building and advocacy.
Since our founding in 1917 the League has put countless numbers of individuals and families on the path to economic opportunity, social equality and the achievement of their dreams. Each year, we help thousands of individuals and their families through quality programs in early childhood education, youth development, employment services, housing and neighborhood revitalization.
