Innovative new fellowship combines free tuition at Big Sky Code Academy's 12 week coding boot camp with a 12 month fellowship to support the technology needs of nonprofits.
Missoula, MT (PRWEB) May 06, 2016
Today, the America Campaign's™ Big Sky Code Academy™ officially launched its Code4Philanthropy™ (C4P) Fellowship. The C4P Fellowship is designed to solve two important challenges facing our country today: Provide free technology training to young adults to gain the skills needed to compete in today’s modern workforce and improve the deployment of innovative technology tools for a nonprofit sector in dire need of them.
"We created the Code4Philanthropy Fellowship after working with thousands of nonprofits over the years and seeing their need for improved technology solutions." said America Campaign Founder, Devin B. Holmes. "By harnessing the desire of our young adults to serve their communities with the innovative curriculum we are teaching at the Big Sky Code Academy, we were able to combine the service year and coding boot camp models to create a unique fellowship that will help modernize our nonprofit community."
Inspired by the success of service year programs like AmeriCorps VISTA, Teach for America and the Mission Continues, the C4P Fellowship provides individuals with an opportunity to serve the nonprofits in their community while gaining valuable and marketable experience with the latest software development languages. This unique fellowship is supported by the Big Sky Code Academy which will provide all C4P Fellows free tuition to its world-class 12 week coding boot camp.
Code4Philanthropy™ and the Big Sky Code Academy™ are initiatives of the America Campaign™, a national non-profit founded in 2015 by serial entrepreneur and philanthropist, Devin B. Holmes, working to improve the lives of all Americans through technology, education and the arts. Along with its Montana Code Girls™ initiative to provide technology training for young women in Montana ages 9 to 19, the America Campaign is focused on developing innovative technology focused solutions that create positive impact.
