All CAPS Capstone

Updated: Nov 30, 2020


Join us from 10 AM to 12 PM on December 5, 2020, as Futures Fund Tech Academy trainees showcase their skills gained over the fall semester at the end of course capstone! Coding trainees will demonstrate the skills they have learned through demos, and photography trainees will share a virtual photo tour. There will be live DJs and virtual guests during the showcase.




The spread of COVID-19 over the past year has made learning virtually the safest way, but it can become tedious if not made dynamic. This semester, in addition to the training time, we offered skill-building games and guest speakers and performances to rally the youth to keep engaged throughout the Saturday session.


Trainees participated in 60 hours of training in computer programming skills including HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. Trainees also learned essential skills such as web development, project management, and client relations to position them for higher-paying technology jobs.


We hope to see you (virtually!) December 5th as we hear from four Resource Speakers, enjoy presentations from all three curriculum levels as well as breakout showcases, and of course some wonderful live music! Please email admin@thefuturesfund.org if you would like to receive an invite link.


Many thanks to our many supporters who make the Futures Fund Tech Academy possible, including New Schools for Baton Rouge, Capital Area United Way, United Way DFW, State Farm, American Advertising Federation, BASF, Upward Bound, and LOSFA.


Hats off to our Fall 2020 students!
