Computing for All
We train promising, underrepresented youth and help them along the pathway to finding an upwardly mobile tech job. We recruit, train and place a diverse spectrum of young adults who have talent but face barriers or lack opportunity. We are working within the education and workforce development system in partnership with Career Connect Washington, a statewide jobs training initiative. We work with employer partners in all phases of this process from validating our curriculum, mentoring students, and evaluating their job readiness skills to providing them with internships and entry–level jobs.
We seek to break down cultural and systemic social barriers that prevent young adults of all races, genders, and abilities from exploring computer science as a potential career. CFA’s employer-mentored, project-based work programs support practicing the application of critical thinking and problem-solving to real-world work scenarios.
