David Delmar (@delmarsenties) is the Founder and Executive Director at Resilient Coders (@resilientcoders), an organization dedicated to teaching young people from traditionally underserved communities how to code.

Resilient Coders' team do this as a way of aligning students with a lucrative and meaningful career path. "It's a multi-tiered program that funnels students from learning HTML after school, through our downtown "Coworking" sessions, and ultimately, hourly employment. Higher performers participate in Resilient Lab, a web design and development shop with real clients. " 

In this 30-min conversation, David shares his origin story from leading a team of designers and coders at PayPal in Boston,  to creating the Resilient Coders, a startup that may or may not work. He talks the importance of getting very comfortable with failures and fiercely pursue your passion".

David shares stories from when he was five, volunteering with his mom at a local orphanage in Mexico.  It was one of my favorite moments on Feisworld Podcast. 

David and his team offer many formats, time availabilities, long and short term engagements for YOU to get involved. (Please note: you do not have to be a developer!) Contact David at david@resilientcoders.org to learn more.

Please let us know passions you have fiercely pursued (still pursuing)!
