After a series of information sessions and a record number of interviews held, Code the Dream’s most diverse cohort yet has been selected:
- The cohort is split nearly 50 / 50 men and women.
- Our high school applicants came to us from over a dozen schools across the region.
- Students range in age from 14 – 59.
- Students from immigrant families have roots in Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, and Nigeria, among other places.
Code the Dream students are hopeful to be the first in their families to attend college or to start their own business. They come from diverse backgrounds, including immigrant families and families trying to get back on their feet. They are hard workers who seek to give back to their communities in a greater way. Every student has unique story that we want to hear more of. As their cohort progresses, our hope is to be able to share bits of their stories with you every couple of weeks. Stay tuned!
