Today there are 50,000 refugees stuck in Greece. Due to economic crisis the country is one of the least prepared in Europe to deal with this influx of people. Currently housing, food, water and other services are paid for in large part by government organizations and NGOs. But very little money is invested in sustainable solutions to the problem like formal education and skills training. 

This summer we will be launching a code school in collaboration with The Cube, a coworking space in Athens. We will accept between 10 and 20 students, and teach them front-end development (HTML, CSS, and Javascript) over the course of 6 months. Each week we will tour a new technology company based in Athens. And at the end of the program students will be placed at these companies or begin working remotely for companies in the United States. Our hope is that this will provide a path out of the camps and towards a dignified, financially independent life.
