Since opening in 2016, Code Tenderloin has helped hundreds of folks move up to the next level of living — gain a community, become housed, stay out of prison, re-skill and realize they can get a job. To date, 378 total students have graduated from Code Tenderloin, and the current placement rate for students is 87% – taking on positions at big name companies like Microsoft, LinkedIn, WeWork, and Checkr.
Next Thursday, March 21st ARGONAUT and Code Tenderloin will be hosting The Five Corners Fundraiser – a night of five stories in honor of the five meaningful corners of the Tenderloin. This inaugural community event will bring together Code Tenderloin students, supporters, volunteers, and local artists; centered around a silent auction (with local artist’s selling work created on canvases inspired by the shape of the Tenderloin).
ARGONAUT has worked with Code Tenderloin on a pro-bono basis since 2016, helping them with various consumer-facing materials and most recently, led the charge on a complete re-branding initiative for the organization including its new “Five Corners” logo which will be officially unveiled at this event
The event is open to the public, and tickets are $65 – all proceeds will support Code Tenderloin initiatives and its students. Here’s all the details:
- Date/Time: March 21st 2019 from 5:30 – 8pm PT
