CodeSquad was born from the realization that Greater Boston's booming tech economy was leaving behind our local communities of color. High-tech districts like Kendall Square in Cambridge have low unemployment, high average salaries and excellent job security. But the picture is very different in Dudley Square in Roxbury, or in neighborhoods like Dorchester, Mattapan or Hyde Park. We call this the Dudley-to-Kendall Divide. CodeSquad seeks to build a bridge from Boston's urban core to its expanding tech job market, and develop a new pipeline of software talent for area employers.
