Our Programs

 

Web Development Fellowship

The Marcy Lab School Web Development Fellowship is our flagship program, designed to be a direct pathway to employment as an entry level software engineer. Over the course of ten months on-campus, students not only learn to build full stack Javascript web applications, but most importantly learn how to think like software engineers.

Students who successfully complete the Fellowship will be placed in a full-time, paid apprenticeship for an additional 3 to 6 months. In addition, fellows benefit from an additional two years of career coaching from The Marcy Lab School Careers Team and a lifetime of support from our network of mentors.

The Marcy Lab School Web Development Fellowship is free of cost to students, thanks to the generous support of our sponsors.

Spring Break code camp

This is a week-long learning experience, designed to introduce students to the foundations of programming and web design. Students will learn the basics of HTML, CSS, and Javascript, the markup and programming languages that power the web. They will brainstorm issues that are important to them and work in teams to create and deploy a dynamic and interactive website that raises awareness about the cause.

Students will hear from Black and Latinx professionals currently working at companies such as Snapchat, Twitter, and Google. While we want students to come away from this experience with tangible skills and foundational knowledge, we leverage volunteer mentors because, more than anything else, we hope that our young people will leave with a greater sense of belief in their own potential.

date

Eligibility

Open to high school juniors and seniors.

after school Enrichment Programming

We partner with high schools and community organizations that serve 14 to 18-year-olds in order to provide extracurricular enrichment in computer science for low-income students of color. We are responsive to the time, space, and technology constraints of our partners, creating custom learning experiences to meet the needs and interests of our students and school partners.

Students learn from instructors and mentors of color with teaching and industry experience. Whether one day or one month, all programs conclude with final projects that are designed, prototyped, and presented by students.
