We Did It!

Posted by Teamwork Englewood (Creator)

Thank You!

We launched our Kickstarter campaign for Englewood Codes on Wednesday April 3. Less than four days later, we exceeded our pledge goal.

Thanks to you, Englewood Codes IS ON for summer 2013!

Recruiting Our Teens

This week, Teamwork Englewood begins circulating applications and recruiting neighborhood youth to join the summer project. Applications will be available online and offline. More details to come!

Stretch Goals

We are currently more than 100 backers strong. You've pushed Englewood Codes to more than 126% of our pledge goal!

A number of project backers have raised the question of stretch goals. Although we have a clear sense of what we can accomplish with more resources, such as including more youth, we're interested in hearing from you.

Share your ideas in the comment section of the Englewood Codes project page. You can also share your ideas on Twitter. Be sure to include @tmwkenglewood (and the project link: in the conversation!

We'll announce our first stretch goal on Wednesday April 10.

Rest assured that our decision on stretch goals will be grounded in our commitment to ensuring a richly meaningful, high-quality summer experience for our project participants.

Thank you for backing Englewood Codes!
