Trying to fill employment gaps in the Bronx
from NY City Lens
On a warm October Tuesday evening in the South Bronx neighborhood of Hunts Point, around 15 students sit hunched over their computers at the BXL Bronx Business Incubator, a large coworking space that houses nearly 30 startups. The students are laughing and joking with each other just like any other college class. During the three-hour web development course, they get up every so often to refill on Doritos or Pepsi. They ask each other questions and offer one another help when they can. Sometimes they tease their teacher, Joe Carreno. But the language these students are working with is anything but kid stuff.
