I believe that Black Boys Code should win this award because they deserve to be recognized for the effort in the community – they are bringing opportunities to black youth that no one else is. Their innovative programs teach not only technical skills, but give the boys confidence and they come together in a safe space to create lasting friendships.
I have worked alongside Black Boys Code for the past few years in a marketing capacity when I can, and the founder Bryan Johnson is very professional and kind to work with. I appreciate him and what he is doing for our youth!
Our programs are aimed at boys of a young age to build capacity and skills in the field of computer technology. We utilize mentorship, industry exposure, and intensive training in the field of computer science to help the boys understand they have the ability to become technological innovators and creators of their own futures.
