According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average salary of a computer programmer was $74,280 in 2012 and employment of computer programmers is projected to grow 8 percent through 2022. However, just 12% of computer science degrees are awarded to women and only 8% are awarded to minorities from low income communities. The opportunity for a future in computer science is often only accessible to children in communities with resources and capital, leaving many children without a chance to succeed.
Kid Angel offers low fee, $99, or free coding programs accessible to all children. We believe this program will change the future by educating and proving opportunity to communities that are often overlooked.
