Code Palm Beach is a nonprofit organization that introduces children and teenagers to computer coding technology in Palm Beach, Florida. Jeremy Lawson, Front End Developer at our West Palm Beach Studio, also serves as the vice chair of this nonprofit organization, promoting tech, coding, engineering, and robotics education for school age children.
Lawson is one of the 54 volunteers that meets once a month at the Mandel Public Library to teach students aged 6 – 14 to introduce themselves to the digital engineering world. For the upcoming events on September 6, October 4 and November 1, he will be joined by six other Softvisioners who are eager to share their knowledge with the participating students.
“When I was a teenager I heard a quote by Ghandi that made a huge impact on who I am today: Be the change you wish to see in the world,” said Jeremy. With those words constantly in the back of his mind, he decided to volunteer at Code Palm Beach. “I do it because it gives me a sense of purpose, I get to teach and shape young minds and that makes a positive impact on my local community,” he added.
