Ruby Nuby teaches Ruby on Rails (RoR) Programming Language and Framework, related technologies and entrepreneurial skills to professionals and students who then learn better by teaching disadvantaged and at-risk youths. We target 9th graders as they enter high school and teach them throughout the year. At the beginning of their 9th-10th grade summer they attend a Ruby Nuby Camp. After attending this camp, they qualify for paid internships and part-time jobs which we arrange through partnerships with companies that use RoR.
By high school graduation, students earn up to $100k/year with full college scholarships
Through Startup Competitions, we incubate and fund businesses with professionals who sponsor the youths to learn alongside them.
To economically develop the Arts, several sponsored slots in the competitions are reserved for artists, musicians and chefs who have won previously held Best Ideas Competitions.
We attract the world's best RoR developers to teach at our camps, help incubate businesses and return home to work remotely with technology businesses they help start in New Orleans.
