Create a Path into Programming

Facebook’s new TechPrep website is intended to empower more African American and Latino children to learn about computer programming and coding, and to encourage them to pursue careers in the tech field. Featuring resources in Spanish and English, the website assists students and their caregivers in the exploration of the IT field, describes types of IT professional activities, and details the competences of software developers. The TechPrep hub offers community events, books, and games to introduce parents and students to the IT world. Resources are available for every age group and skill level. To extend the program’s visibility into communities, Facebook has scheduled a roadshow in US cities that is due in the upcoming months.
