At your own pace courses on our online learning platform; and
Career development and placement support.
When is the Academy?
The Intermediate Academy will run April 26th – May 7th from 5:00pm to 9:00pm Eastern Time.
How much does it cost to attend?
We asked for a $250 suggested donation.
At Change the Game, it’s important that everyone who wants to participate in our training has the opportunity to do so, which is why we ask for a suggested donation instead of a tuition for this course. We know that this year has been full of challenges and hardships for folks, and want you to know that an inability to pay our suggested donation does not make you ineligible for this academy.
Who should apply?
We’re looking for folx who have worked as entry level data staffers in the progressive space with at least one cycle under their belt, or graduates from our 2020 beginner academy. It’s important for participants to have a firm grasp on SQL and Google Sheets/Excel, in order to be able to get started on Python.
Participants should be able to attend all live sessions and are expected to complete projects & homework on their own. There is a lot to learn in a short time, and we want to make sure graduates leave with the tools, skills and connections needed to grow as professionals.
