We are raising funds for a new organization we’ve called, Code: Out. We are a US based non-profit who will be teaching women in the Georgia prison system how to Code. We will provide more than education; we plan on addressing systemic issues that prevent women from succeeding after they’re released. Women will be given the opportunity to learn code, become employable on a new level and be given tools for success!
We are sick of the repeating cycle of imprisonment and women being lost to the prison system. We have decided to come together to do something about it. We are going to teach women in Georgia’s prisons systems how to code in order to:
- give them a pathway to gainful employment
- gain sustainable wages for themselves and their families
- reduce the risk of recidivism
We call this organization Code: Out. We’re doing this now because of the market in Atlanta is desperate for new talent. The market in the tech industry is ripe for new forms of diversity and in need of new perspectives on creative ideas. These are the type of people the tech industry needs and these are the kinds of jobs past inmates can achieve.
To do this we need your help. Donations matter and so to thank you for your donations we’ve created tiers.
