Our mission: Creating equity through access

Through education, inspiration, and activation, the Experience Center Academy will invest directly in the local community to empower students from underprivileged backgrounds toward gainful employment in the 21st century digitally-enabled economy.

How it works

  • The XCA pays accepted students to learn to code through a contemporary, human-centered technology curriculum.
  • The 20-week program provides all necessary hardware, software, mentorship, and support to teach students software development and prepare them for careers in the modern tech economy.
  • Students do not need to have any experience or education level to apply.
  • Following the 20-week curriculum, the XCA helps students find jobs.
