Happy Black History Month

Happy Black History Month from Level Up Tutorials!
This month brings the celebration and reflection of African Americans’ integral role in U.S. history. This is a time that brings the oftentimes overlooked achievements and sacrifices of Black Americans to the forefront, while also celebrating their rich culture and heritage. Here at Level Up Tutorials, we additionally take some time this month to reflect and further educate ourselves on the continued challenges, adversity and mistreatment Black people face in our communities.
LUT was created with the purpose to break down walls and increase access to quality, affordable education resources for web development. Not everyone has the means to gain a “traditional” computer science education. Our goal is to meet people wherever they’re at and provide the resources for them to learn the skills and tools to achieve their professional goals, without unnecessary challenges.
As a small business, we’re intensely selective with what organizations and causes we support. We’ve donated monthly to Black Girls Code and Allstar Code since 2019 because we believe young people, especially young people of color, should feel inspired and supported to pursue their dreams in STEM.
We hope that the work that we’re doing here at Level Up Tutorials continues to allow individuals to dream big and achieve their goals.
