The Latest From Code Savvy - 2022 Impact and Appreciation
As we approach year-end, we are spending some time reflecting on the impact that our programs have had in 2022.
We are also gearing up to set our intentions and goals for 2023.
In just a couple of weeks, our 2022 Impact Report will be available for you all, so you will be able to see all of the amazing work we’ve done this year. But I first wanted to take a moment today to thank YOU for the impact that you’ve had on us.
Our network of directors, volunteers, teachers, parents, mentors, and students is INCREDIBLE, and you all make the work that we do that much better, every day.
Please take a moment to pause and reflect on your own accomplishments this holiday season, and know that every single one of you is appreciated and celebrated by us here at Code Savvy. We couldn’t do what we do without you.
Happy Holidays and Merry Yule to you all!
