GOOD is excited to announce the launch of Coding for GOOD, an opportunity to gain skills in coding and a chance to work with us here at GOOD. It’s an effort to bridge the skills gap through real-world application.

To get started, you’ll work your way through the sixteen easy-to-follow coding lessons found here, and then submit a final project that showcases what you’ve learned. The top three candidates will be flown to Los Angeles to compete in a hack-a-thon and the winner may be offered a position to join the Tech team here at GOOD!

The submission period for final projects will open on December 3, so get started on the lessons here.

And make sure to check out all the other happenings at GOOD:

  • Help us make voting day a holiday. (Did you catch our funny video with Rainn Wilson?) We’re telling businesses to Take Back Tuesday by pledging to give their employees a day off so everyone has time to vote and celebrate civic life and the democratic process. We’ve already gotten 50 companies to take the pledge, so help us keep the momentum going.
  • Head over to GOOD Maker and take part in our latest challenges to spread some good. Do you have a great idea of how animals could improve the lives of those in your community? Submit yours now to the Improve Lives with Animals challenge.
  • There are lots of interesting conversations happening on GOOD. Have you checked out our newest infographics? And don’t forget to follow what members of the GOOD community are talking about, like co-founder Casey Caplowe and Creativity curator Yasha Wallin. Start exploring here.
