Why should you sponsor?
A recent study shows that within the next 10 years, 12 million tech jobs will go unfilled in the United States, and during the same decade 6 million Americans won’t find employment due to unequal exposure to tech career paths. With the growing need for IT professionals, the time to educate our students is right now, and Yellow Circle would like you to be a part of this effort. Various sponsorship levels are available for your organization to provide support for CodeForFolsom.
