Geekwise Academy teaches people to code and focuses on building on-ramps for those traditionally left out of the technology industry.

MORE THAN A CLASS

IT’S A COMMUNITY

Geekwise is growing a community of developers with job-ready skills built on an important foundation of collaboration and support. This crazy-talented group is filled to the brim with instructors, students, and teammates focused on helping one another succeed. In this pipeline, learners become teachers, acting as mentors, sounding boards, and champions to the program’s newest members. The funny thing about feeling empowered? You want to pass it on.

KNOWING

AND DOING

Within the Geekwise Academy structure, there is no separation of the knowing and the doing. Planning, designing, building, and testing are all happening simultaneously in a constant reconfiguration, engaging students’ ability to problem solve and think critically. Every Geekwise course includes a social-learning component. Why does that matter? It ensures students leave with workplace-communication training paired perfectly with the tech skill they are studying.

REAL WORLD

ACCELERATED TRAINING

At its core, Geekwise Academy is supplying a qualified workforce. Working as paid interns and apprentices, members of the Geekwise Cohort have the opportunity to build websites and applications for clients near and far – whether it be in their own backyard or across the country. In this dynamic program, each Cohort is led by a senior-level developer, as participants co-teach Geekwise Academy courses and work on projects for Shift3 Technologies and Tenzin.
