WebSlam

WebSlam

WebSlam is an intensive, two-week long experience to develop real-world skills in web development and then put those skills to work to help others. Through the aid of tech coaches and direct instruction, youth participants (irrespective of prior web development background) learn the basics of HTML, CSS, and PHP through developing for the WordPress platform. As a capstone to the week of learning, students undertake to solve the needs of actual clients (nonprofits) who are in need of web solutions in an intensive hackathon-style "WebSlam." By intertwining the learning of a new skill set (web development) with a service opportunity (helping a non-profit), students are motivated to learn more and inspired to do civic good with their knowledge.
