This non-profit organisation run a volunteer-led, six-month program for refugees to learn coding/software development – empowering them to gain employment here in their new home.
Ticketmaster is proud to be involved by providing laptops for the students, a space for the lessons to take place and Ticketmaster techies to act as mentors throughout the program.
Each Sunday for the past six months, Code Your Future has called the Field in our Angel office home – and the group of students are nearing their graduation day, with many already securing roles at tech companies across the country.
Cody Your Future has already expanded to Glasgow, and hopes to expand to other regions and cities in the future.
Looking ahead, Code Your Future and Ticketmaster will soon welcome the next batch of refugees to commence their studies, supporting their dream of becoming developers.
