Code for Good has office hours every day (Monday to Friday) during IAP. Hours and location are listed below. Attendance is not strictly mandatory, but we highly encourage students to come regularly to work on their projects with their team, and get their questions answered. Plus there will be snacks! We also have weekly mandatory activities (check-in with the staff and dinner / mini-presentation).

At the end of IAP, students are required to submit their project to their nonprofit (guidelines), submit a final project report to the Code for Good staff (guidelines), and participate in the expo.
