Arrow Electronics’ employees supported an Hour of Code event at Accenture’s Denver office last month that was attended by local students and their families. Arrow provided 20 laptops for the event, and employees volunteered to coach students through the event’s interactive coding modules. 

Accenture’s Hour of Code initiative aims to provide every student with an opportunity to learn computer science, which helps nurture problem-solving skills, logic and creativity. This is Arrow’s second year collaborating with Accenture on its national effort to introduce young people to computer science and programming. 

“Volunteering with Accenture’s Hour of Code was such a rewarding experience,” said Arrow Marketing Director Zaneta Kelsey. “The kids were so excited to learn how to code, and it was great to watch them learn new skills and gain confidence. It’s gratifying to work for a company like Arrow that invests in opportunities like these to help fuel the next generation of innovators and inventors.”
