We are CYWOC

EDUCATE.

Starting in the summer of 2021, CYWOC will provide education through online classes hosted by caring and talented instructors who believe in our mission. We will teach JavaScript, C#, and Unity courses, languages and technologies that ensure our graduates gain modern and relevant skills widely sought out by employers. In time, supported skill levels will range from complete beginner to highly trained. Now accepting applications!

EMPOWER.

CYWOC aims to bring systemic change by creating a highly-skilled, competitive talent pipeline. We will promote portfolio and career development including paid internships and job opportunities with local development firms starting with Portland, ME. In addition to learning the fundamentals, students’ work will be showcased in community events, and our partners are offering staff augmentation opportunities.

ENGAGE.

CYWOC will engage the community through Virtual Reality (VR) exhibits. The exhibits will showcase our students’ technical talents, and art or music from underrepresented artists. Future exhibits include Juneteenth at State Theatre, our VR series at Thompson’s Point, and BeyDay at State Theatre. These ground-breaking events will be the first time many members of our community have experienced VR and will serve as our main tool to inspire and recruit new students to join CYWOC, and gain friends and allies to support CYWOC’s mission.

JUNETEENTH

The State Theatre and CYWOC are excited to announce their upcoming event, Juneteenth! at the State Theatre. The performance will stream from the State Theatre’s Facebook page on Saturday, June 19th at 8:00 pm.

This year’s event will include performances by Black musicians and performers: Janaesound, Mosart212, Ali Ali, and Rodney Mashia, a Biddeford-based musician who also performed last year.
