Boys & Girls Clubs of America and Apple are committed to supporting an equitable future, creating access and opportunity for digital access, coding and more for today’s kids and teens.
Apple and Boys & Girls Clubs of America are partnering to advance learning opportunities and outcomes in STEAM for Club youth, with a focus on coding, creativity and community-connected learning.
Coding empowers kids and teens to create and collaborate on the basics of app development, while building workforce readiness skills such as critical thinking and creative problem-solving. Select Boys & Girls Clubs across the nation will be able to enhance existing STEM programming with Apple’s free Everyone Can Code curriculum, a supply of iPad devices and ongoing professional support from Apple educators.
Apple has also started a new program and initiative with Everyone Can Create. Everyone Can Create will empower and challenge teens through challenge based learning using technology and skills to create impact stories using video, voice and digital photography.
“At Apple, we believe education is a force for equity, and that all learners should have the opportunity to explore and develop coding skills for their future,” said Lisa Jackson, Apple’s vice president of Environment, Policy and Social Initiatives.
