Today, Codecademy in conjunction with The White House announced a new program to educate the nation’s underprivileged and disconnected youth: Code Summer+.

The announcement was made at an event held by Twilio and hosted by US CTO Aneesh Chopra. There, Codecademy’s co-founder Zach Sims explained that as part of Obama’s larger Summer Jobs+ initiative, Code Summer+ will offer a “condensed version of our curriculum to get [youth] on track to become engineers.”

Summer Jobs+ is designed to help the government connect young people with jobs. President Obama announced Summer Jobs+ earlier this month, describing it as “a joint initiative that challenges business leaders and communities to join my Administration in providing hundreds of thousands of summer jobs for America’s youth.”
