Community, Nonprofits and Businesses sharing Information
DAE is currently seeking applicants for our fall high school after-school and adult technology education programs. Our programs are 100% free of charge and offer students in-depth training in Computer Science. We seek to create college and career readiness particularly within communities that have been historically marginalized and under-resourced. No prior experience or expertise is required for any of our programs — just the desire to learn and create! All of our programs happen at our downtown New Haven location, very close to the Green and central bus hubs.
Our after-school program runs from September 11, 2023 to June 8, 2024. We meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:30-6:30PM, with an optional lab day on Wednesdays. The program consists of 8 modules. The first two give students the basics they need to get started, then they will choose a technical track to really go deep into either Website Development, Video Game Design or Internet-Of-Things. Students will be learning by doing, creating their own projects and developing their own ideas in a highly collaborative and welcoming environment. Students will also create a portfolio that can easily be shared with prospective employers and college admissions offices.
Our adult program is primarily for New Haven residents, ages 18-28 years old (some exceptions can be made to this but placements are very limited and prioritized to this demographic for the time being). It is a full-time program, meeting three days per week from 11AM-5PM, from October-January (exact dates to be confirmed shortly). Students will learn the basics of web development and then choose a technical track in either front or back-end development (highly motivated students can do both tracks simultaneously). Students will develop a portfolio of their work that can easily be shared with prospective employers.
Further information can be found on the attached PDF flyers and prospective students can inquire about applying to the programs via these links:
