Van Jones, Reshma Saujani, Soledad O’Brien and Marcus Samuelsson are among this year’s honorees at the All Star Code fifth annual Summer Benefit taking place Saturday, July 28, in East Hampton, N.Y.
All Star Code is a nonprofit computer science education organization focused on motivating Black and Latino young men. The organization aims to increase professional access and STEM education for young men of color in an effort to grow the tech sector and ultimately the U.S. economy through entrepreneurship.
Best known for its flagship Summer Intensive, All Star Code recently wrapped up its six-week coding boot camp where the young men received computer skills, networking opportunities and mentoring.
The summer benefit will raise money for laptops and other supplies and equipment for students at All Star Code.
