Hello, I am a former teacher and met a young man who has chosen to set up a transition program for children out of the juvenile justice system in Houston and one of the primary goals is obviously job skills. This impressive young man) is making a huge difference in the lives of kids as young as 11 who otherwise drop out of school and return to the criminal system. I would like your help to add coding to the job skills that he can offer these children. Most of them (over 90% are non-violent crimes)
I reached out to the Code Support team and they suggested that I reach out to you for your input and recommendation. So, I’m asking for your input for mapping skill sets for these students keeping in mind that they are not in typical elementary, middle school and high school divisions.

Thank you for your help,
