Overview

The Junior Summer Coding Leadership Academy (JR SCLA) is a 4-week experience where young men of color develop as technology leaders. Inner city students partake in experiential learning, receive mentoring and instruction to develop Leadership Skills, Computer Science Skills, Design Thinking Skills, and Entrepreneurial/Project Management Skills.

Through experiential learning, coaching & instruction, and mentorship, our Jr. participants use the skills gained throughout the summer to create a web app that meets a social need or a demand in their community. The culmination of the Junior Summer Coding Leadership Academy is the Annual South Los Angeles Jr. Demo Day. On Jr. Demo Day, Jr. participants are enthused to showcase the skills that they have acquired, and the digital manifestations of those skills through the web apps they have built which they will present to a panel of professionals.

Eligibility: Boys currently enrolled in 7th or 8th grade.
