Hopeworks ‘N Camden stays bringing the hackathons to (duh) Camden.
A year after hosting Camden’s first hackathon, the nonprofit is hosting another Camden Code Day on Oct. 15 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. It plans to teach Camden youth how to use programs including Github, Javascript and PHP. (The organization is also looking for volunteers to help out at the event.)
Located at the Camden CoLab coworking space, the event will also provide coding workshops at beginner, intermediate and advanced levels. Although Hopeworks is targeted toward youth, Camden Code Day invites everyone six years old and up to participate.
Hopeworks is a 16-year-old nonprofit that works with youth ages 14-23, teaching skills in technology and entrepreneurship and encouraging them to pursue further education. Other events the organization participates in include community engagement and training Camden schools about youth trauma.
