CODEvelop at the Southwest Regional Branch

CODEvelop is a Louisville Free Public Library Program, offered for free, aimed at exposing teens to skills in web development. Teens will develop a website and connect with mentors in the information technology (IT) field. Mentors will guide students through online lessons and assist in creating a project. 

Over half a million jobs are unfilled in the national IT sector, making it the largest occupational category for open jobs, and this strong growth is expected to continue. However, only approximately 20% of schools currently offer computer programming as part of the curriculum.

CODEvelop is a summer program for high school students (age 14-18) interested in learning web development.  Students will meet twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays from July 2 - July 30, 1 PM - 4 PM at the Southwest Regional Library to learn the basics of front end web development using the Treehouse on-line learning platform.

Perks of the program include free TARC passes to attend the sessions and the chance to win an iPad mini!
