As summer draws to a close in Southern California, five San Diego County high school students are heading back to school with an increased knowledge of coding, having also been exposed to a potential future career path. Peachjar’s Chief Technology Officer, Wesley van Rensburg, hosted the summer internship program with the goal of helping inspire young minds to code.
During the internship, students also learned about and rotated through each of Peachjar’s various departments, gaining an understanding of how each function contributes to the overall growth of the company.
"Training the future workforce is critical, especially in the domain of technology,” said CTO Wesley van Rensburg. “Peachjar's mission is to help improve the trajectory of the lives of K-12 children, and we felt that with this internship program, we could do just that.” In recent years, Peachjar has strengthened its focus on philanthropy, and will continue offering programs like this in its ongoing effort to positively impact the K-12 community.
