YouthBuild Charter School of California Hosts CODEchella at L.A. Trade Tech College
(Los Angeles, CA – April 7, 2016) On Saturday, April 9th, YouthBuild Charter School of California (YCSC), with generous support from Colocation America, will host CODEchella, an all-day website coding event at L.A. Trade Tech College from 8:00am to 8:00pm. At the event, ten teams of students will have less than twelve hours to build websites for community members. The forty students participating, who are all former high school dropouts between the ages 16-24, previously had little to no experience in coding websites. The event is the culmination of a week of intensive classes in HTML, CSS, and Adobe Photoshop, designed to help these students learn skills that will translate into jobs to lift them out of poverty. A panel of industry leaders and teachers will judge the students’ websites, with awards for the best website design at the end of the night.
