OUR STORY

The Disrupt Harlem Code Squad is a new coding & entrepreneurship program created by the Harlem Business Alliance to connect Harlem’s young adults to the NYC tech industry. The 11 week program teaches 20 selected participants how to code and design a mobile or web app of their own creation. Following the training, students will be connected to internships or be fast-tracked to a Fullstack Developer coding program at The Knowledge House.
