Veterans leave home and give their all on behalf of their sisters and brothers. When they return, they often struggle to transition into sustainable livelihood and are alienated. Code Platoon helps veterans and military spouses translate their transcendent will power into transformative careers in software development. Because the selfless leaders of tomorrow should be the selfless heroes of today.
Because we are a nonprofit, we are better able to focus our time, energy and resources on what counts. Serving the veteran community underpins everything we do, from providing a top-notch curriculum to making the occupational transition as seamless as possible. Our dedicated staff works around the clock to support each fourteen week, fourteen hour a day, six day a week intensive training session, with nonstop learning, interaction, experience and opportunity, at little to no cost to the student. Without the support of donors, these programs are simply not possible.
