Oak Hill Collaborative and AT&T are working together to bring more computer programming classes to students in Youngstown.
Recently, we announced a $10,000 contribution to Oak Hill as part of our AT&T Aspire initiative, which helps provide access to education and the training people need to get and keep good jobs.
With the AT&T Aspire support, and in partnership with Youngstown State University, Oak Hill is launching an interactive STEM program where high school students will learn C++ programming language and object-oriented programming skills. Among the creative ways they’ll be learning about programming: they’ll be developing video games.
“For our community to continue to succeed in the 21st century, our students and our workforce need skills like these,” said Youngstown Mayor Tito Brown. “It’s great to see Oak Hill, YSU and AT&T working together to create opportunities for people to move in to rewarding careers.”
“AT&T shares our goal of promoting innovation and interest in technology jobs,” said Oak Hill Collaborative Executive Director Pat Kerrigan. “They are a long-time partner of ours and we are excited to have this support for their initiative that will benefit both our young people and the future of Youngstown.”
