Alchemy Code Lab was disappointed to learn ChickTech, one of our most important partner organizations providing real-world tech experience and opportunities for girls and women in Portland, lost an annual $300,000 funding source. As a tech career academy dedicated to fostering an inclusive and welcoming tech community in Portland, we consider ChickTech and its work to be vital to the mission of establishing our city as a leader in tech diversity.
We encourage our neighbors in the Portland tech community to join us in supporting ChickTech with their own pledges to this meaningful and influential organization.
Apply for our full program (Bootcamp 1, Bootcamp 2 and Career Track) here. Don’t worry -- applying does not commit you to attending our program, it simply starts the process.
Once you apply, you'll hear from our School Director, to set up a meeting with her and a Learning Readiness Exam and meeting with our CEO.
Accepted! Once you are accepted, you'll need to secure your spot with a $350 deposit.
These three steps need to be completed in December 2018 in order to qualify for the donation.
