Stories of Impact
Where I Was
I did labor-intensive jobs my whole life. I started as a welder at the shipping docks straight out of high school. Fast forward 10+ years and several jobs later, I started to realize I couldn't keep doing this.
Where I Am
I found CodeBoxx and discovered that my passion for building things could be applied to coding. Now, I'm furthering my learning as a Full Stack Developer while becoming a part of a great community of like-minded coders, who are always collaborating and growing.
Accessible, Inclusive, & Here to Stay.

All programs are purposefully designed to accommodate diverse learning styles and abilities, creating an inclusive environment for all.

Our Holistic Approach
A robust and qualified workforce is central to a healthy community. A holistic approach to workforce development requires funding and resources that address the entirety of an individual's needs; it goes beyond the technical training to include necessary support measures such as child services, living stipends, and tuition coverage. By creating an environment conducive to comprehensive immersion and success, individuals are fully empowered to transform their lives and careers.
We invite nonprofits and individuals to partner with us to broaden our reach and deepen our impact. Together, through recruiting and holistic support infrastructure, we can uplift our communities and change lives.
