Today, along with our partner OIC of Rhode Island we spoke with graduating seniors at Central Falls High School. Our Executive Director, Arnell Milhouse, discussed our upcoming CareerDevs Computer Science Academy. The 3-month training program is designed to help graduating seniors and adults secure gainful employment in the tech industry, especially in underserved markets like Central Falls.
Milhouse spoke about how a career in technology transformed his life and served as a gateway from poverty to the middle class. He connected with the students by explaining how he became interested in computer science, and students were laughing at his geeky references to today’s music with phrases like “I’m in love with the code code.”
We are grateful to our partner OIC and to the Central Falls school department for the opportunity to speak to these amazing students.
