Non-profit leader Goodie Nation today announces grants from ServiceTitan®, redefinED atlanta and the Concrete Rose Foundation. All monies will exclusively bolster Goodie Nation’s initiative to support leaders of coding, design, engineering, math, and robotics programs.
Goodie Nation is on a mission to change trajectories of the next generation of tech leaders – accelerating futures by putting people and relationships at the center of tech.
The total pledged represents about 10 percent of Goodie Nation’s annual funding target.
“Tech ecosystems are only as strong as the organizations that champion the training of students,” said Joey Womack, CEO of Goodie Nation. “These commitments enable us to then turn around and make an impact on local communities. As we look to more than double the number of our founders by the end of 2021, such support provides great momentum towards reaching our goal.”
Goodie Nation has platforms to support both the post-secondary arena as well as K-12 education. Both the Intentionally Good: K12 Tech Training Programs and the Intentionally Good: Post-Secondary Tech Training Programs work to change trajectories of the next generation of tech leaders through collaborating with the best tech training programs, fine tuning their curriculum to align with the changing economy and workforce.
“We know Goodie Nation is doing the critical work of filling in education gaps in schools and communities,” said Ed Chang, executive director of redefinED atlanta. “We’re confident this funding will only deepen their impact.”
Goodie Nation has a goal of backing 100 tech training programs across the U.S. in 2021. Visit the website, www.GoodieNation.org, to learn more and apply for support.
