Applications Open for New Sessions!

Our Mother's Day gift to the world -- 4 new class sessions for 2016!

We've been working fast and furious to pull together ALL.THE.THINGS. needed to launch an awesome new series of MotherCoders classes, and I'm thrilled (and relieved) to report that we've done it just in time for Mother's Day!

Yay for us! And yay for moms in the SF Bay Area who have been yearning for a way to break into tech!

And we're so excited about the improvements we've made to the program -- changes driven by what we've learned from past sessions. These include:

  • Adding a field trip to meet a tech team at a local company.
  • Partnering with Degreed to put our collection of learning resources onto one platform where courses completed and articles read can be tracked, thereby enabling students to show a learning portfolio to potential employers.
  • Adding weekday sessions.
  • Partnering with PlayHaven and several YMCAs to offer facilities that can accommodate on-site childcare for a wider range of ages.
  • Partnering with YMakers to provide STEAM programming for the kids of moms participating in the Fall 2016 session at the Mission YMCA. (Because a family that hacks together, stays together. Or something like that.)

You can check out the details here, as well as find information on dates and locations, eligibility requirements, and instructions on how to apply.

So in honor of Mother's Day, we hope you'll share this post with all the moms you know. Or better yet -- apply for the program yourself if you're a mom! And as always, please reach out if you have feedback or questions by emailing apply@mothercoders.org or tweeting us @mothercoders.
