Code the Dream is excited to welcome a new class of programming students. This cohort is unique because it is enrolled in our first online-only class. Because of this, we are able to expand our reach beyond the Triangle, enrolling students from a number of states and four different time zones!
Our new students come from a diverse range of ages and backgrounds:
- Our cohort is comprised of 24 women and 18 men.
- Over half are immigrants, with students who have come to the U.S. from Korea, the Dominican Republic, Nigeria, and Khazakstan, among many other countries.
- Almost half of our students are from the Triangle; students are also joining us from other parts of North Carolina, California, New York, and the Midwest.
- The cohort ranges in age from 16 to 49, although the average age is 30.
Many of our students are parents, some are first-generation college students, and others are looking for a fresh start in their career. Each one brings a unique set of skills and experiences to Code the Dream, and we can’t wait to share more of their stories as the class gets underway.
