Back for a second year, the Tech and Innovation Internship and OpportunityPHL mentorship program hosted 18 Philadelphia high school and college students who come from backgrounds that are traditionally underrepresented in tech and innovation.
Philadelphia is known as the city of murals. 1Philadelphia is proud to strengthen this tradition by coming together with Mural Arts, Bank Of America, Coded By Kids and muralist Priscilla Bell to create this amazing work of art to inspire Philly’s youth.
Now in his fourth year with Coded by Kids, David has grown from being a Ctrl+Shift competition participant to leading his own team of development interns.
We sat down with one of our newest CBK team members to learn about her non-traditional journey to tech and her experiences as an instructor.
Starting his CBK journey by entering the 2022 Ctrl+Shift coding competition, Tahsin then joined our Tech & Innovation Internship program, was hired by Draft Studios, and most recently competed in the Innovation League.
Sylvester Mobley, founder, and CEO of Coded by Kids thinks so.
Philly high school student Reda took the knowledge he learned in CbK Academy and created an amazing art website that earned him a $5,000 prize.
