Flexion YWeb CA Interns

YWeb Career Academy in the News

Is your organization ready to invest in the web development professionals of the future?

When YWCA Madison and Adorable.io put out a call for Technology Partners for YWeb Career Academy (YWeb CA)—a tech training program targeting women and people of color—Flexion Partner and Chief Technology Officer Scott Hasse was quick to answer yes!

With the goal of preparing students for family-supporting technology careers, YWeb CA training includes instruction in front end web development skills like HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Git, UX design and project management as well as helping prepare graduates with job readiness skills—from building effective team relationships to interviewing skills.

Tech Partners provide varying levels of support, ranging from mentorship to paid internships. Flexion team members have acted as mentors, guest speakers and faux-hiring managers for YWeb CA. Flexion is also currently home to two YWeb CA alum interns.

A recently published Madison365.com article features an inspiring interview with our own Elizabeth Bell. Elizabeth and fellow YWeb CA graduate La’Shawna Brown are just over midway through their internships at Flexion, and have made big contributions to a Flexion Developer Summit team building exercise as well as client projects.
