The LEARN Foundation's mission is to break down barriers and create more entry points for marginalized communities to enter the tech industry. Through local outreach and scholarships to LEARN academy's full-time web development bootcamp, the LEARN Foundation aims to make a difference in people's lives.
The funds raised by The LEARN Foundation will go towards providing skill-building workshops and scholarships for underserved populations. These opportunities will help more adults transition into the growing and dynamic tech industry. With our donors' support, the LEARN Foundation will break down the financial barriers that stand in the way for those needing this assistance the most—allowing them to pursue an innovative and successful career.
The LEARN Foundation is removing the obstacles to success by offering scholarships to diverse and underserved populations who often face significant cultural and economic challenges. There is a lot of risk and sacrifice in committing to a coding bootcamp. In addition to the financial investment of tuition many individuals give up income during this time.
The LEARN Foundation's goal is to empower students with significant scholarships. These scholarships will help people overcome these challenges and offer a valuable opportunity to discover a new future through coding and web development.
