Following on the heels of my LaunchCoder Girl post last week, there's more great news about the CWE-based company. An article by reporter Lisa Brown in the Business Section of Saturday's St. Louis Post-Dispatch announced that LaunchCode execs Jim McKelvey and Brendan Lind, together with Chicago-based coding bootcamp Blue1647, are opening a Tech Mentor Center for underprivileged youth at 4811 Delmar, just east of Euclid in the Fountain Park Neighborhood, shown above. Megan Smith, the U.S. Chief Technology Officer came to town for the announcement on Friday.
It is hoped that the Tech Mentor Center will open by late summer. Read the good news in its entirety here.
