ColorStack Sprout is a 12-week program designed to attract and support Black and Latinx students finding challenges in their pursuit of Computer Science. Thousands of Black and Latinx students drop the CS major annually not because they're no longer interested, but because of isolation, lack of support, and feeling "behind." Sprout equips you with a community of students just like you, bridges knowledge gaps about Computer Science, and provides you with long-term resources to help you complete your degree with confidence.
