Join Us for an Hour of Code
By: Accenture Recruitment

We are thrilled to share the news that we’re partnering with nonprofit organization Code.org to support Hour of Code, a week-long movement dedicated to introducing computer science to students around the globe. The initiative—which asks participants to spend an hour inspiring students to learn computer science—coincides with Computer Science Week, which is observed from December 7th-13th, and impacts 1 million students in more than 180 countries.

Join us in celebrating the Hour of Code movement by working to inspire, educate and equip young people with the skills necessary to effectively pursue careers in technology. There are a number of ways that you can get involved:

Pledge to complete an Hour of Code:
Challenge yourself to spend 1 hour learning code or performing a coding activity. No experience is necessary—and you can even turn this into a fun activity that you do with your family and friends. Hourofcode.com offers a number of resources to help you get started.

Help others learn to code:
If you already know how to code, you might consider spending an hour teaching others. Try volunteering to teach an Hour of Code at a school or community center in your area. Download the volunteer toolkit for more ideas.

Spread the word:
Encourage others to join in on the fun via Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn using #HourOfCode.
