Star Tech Global Academy collaborated with education partner Garfield Teen Life Center to host a Coder's Club workshop in Fall 2019. Each student successfully completed a website for our local community partner Nevzat's Espresso, a minority-owned small business. Each student received a completion certificate and their completion rewards, pictured below. This program was made possible by our individual donors and our lead partners Nordstrom Cares and the City of Seattle Department of Neighborhoods. You can view some of the student websites below!
