Justin gave his youngest brother an inflection grant so he could learn to code, and it changed the trajectory of his life.
With one laptop and $50 of Udemy courses, he started learning and teaching himself to code. In just a few months of work, he built an app and got a code mentor to develop his skills further.
He was engaged and excited about learning and building more apps, and we bet he learned more than anyone else in his school.
That excitement and growth is infectious. We want to help more young explorers change their trajectory. This is why we started the Inflection Grant Program.
