The Impact Fellowship is a 2-week program for tech students who want to build a better world! Based in NYC during winter break, the program features workshops with advanced software engineers and speakers from the social impact arena - fellows also team up and create their own social startups that address the UN Sustainable Development Goals! This years dates: 2-16 January 2020 in New York City!
What exactly is the CS curriculum during the fellowship? The workshop-style courses are focused on specific languages or concepts and customized to fit fellows’ abilities and backgrounds. We change the curriculum from year to year to keep up with what’s most useful for fellows to learn. In past years, it has included courses on topics such as full stack web dev, ML, and blockchain technology. Regardless of the specific curriculum, the goal is to endow fellows with the tools they'll need to start their own projects and turn their ideas into reality.
Our talented instructors volunteer their time out of the goodness of their hearts, and our guest speakers love the opportunity to speak to bright, enthusiastic, amazing fellows! However, we do not provide meals or housing during the fellowship, so our fellows have to take care of themselves in those respects.
