Summer Youth Program for Lexington High School Students
Lexington School for the Deaf is partnering with Deaf Kids Code to provide a rich summer work-based learning experience. This program will be a 6-week unpaid hybrid (virtual and in-person) experience that will allow students to earn required work-based learning hours towards New York State’s Career Development Occupational Studies (CDOS) credential requirements for graduation.
Students will learn and develop programming and technology skills including app development, website design, and computing while increasing their understanding of the importance of technology and 21st century skills in the workforce. Additionally, students will have the opportunity to meet and learn from Deaf technology professionals who work for NASA, Google, and Microsoft.
