The Code in the Schools-run program includes an intro to HTML, CSS and Javascript. Additionally, 50 of the youth are enrolled in University of Baltimore classes including game design and Baltimore Racial Justice, Code in the Schools Communications Director Charlotte James said.

Lessons on starting a business are also on the agenda. On Friday, July 14, they’ll get a look at entrepreneurship from a group of community leaders. It’s part of the program’s weekly Industry Day sessions.

The 1:30 p.m. event is set to be held at the Wright Theater in the University of Baltimore Student Center. It’s open to the public.
