Pitt-Johnstown and partners have launched a bold and ambitious initiative – CODE (Computational-Learning for Opportunities in a Digital Environment) for Commonwealth & Country – with the goal of enhancing digital literacy for workforce competitiveness, beginning in K-12 and beyond.
"Everyone deserves to be ready to compete and thrive in the unfolding 21st century world. Therefore, our goal is to bring the basics of coding to every child and every student, in every nook and cranny of the Greater Johnstown region, transforming the so-called 'Rust Belt' into a hotspot in the new digital economy with great jobs for our people."
Dr. Jem Spectar, President
