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 24-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 24-week curriculum, the XCA helps students find jobs.
