Resilient Coders are Making Serious Moves

David Delmar, Founder & Executive Director of Resilient Coders is here to tell you why they're just straight-up winning. 

"In the six months that we've been at this, we've had several major wins: We've run seven cohorts. We're at schools, at community programs, and in lock up. We have support from the BPD, and from TUGG.

"We have a fleet of computers, thanks to donations from the community, including TUGG's own FutureChefs, and Silicon Valley Bank. We've launched Resilient Lab, and are employing some of our youth to work with real clients. We've built up a team of mentors, and youth leaders. We've assembled a small but stacked board, welcoming Josh Summers and Susanne Beck. You can read about everyone here. And in January we'll be announcing a major, soul-melting milestone for one of our hackers. Sign up for our newsletter to hear about it. You'll be pretty pumped, we promise."

Right now, Resilient Coders is running a matched campaign through Charitweet, thanks to the generosity of a Fidelity Charitable donor. Short and sweet: raise $2,000 by year's end.
