We’re excited to welcome Richard Rivera to the Code Nation team as our New York City Executive Director.
Richard will be leading our New York City office, helping us grow to serve more students in the Big Apple. “The tech sector is one of the fastest pathways to success and crosses numerous occupations,” says Richard.
“I’m excited to join the team and help expand opportunities to unleash untapped talent in Manhattan and the outer boroughs.”
Richard has deep roots in the New York City non-profit and education communities and brings more than 20 years of experience to Code Nation.
He comes to us from the Bronx non-profit HERE to HERE, where he served as the VP of Strategic Partnerships for Summer Programs and Internships.
“We’re thrilled to have him on board and are confident he’ll be successful in expanding our footprint to more under-served communities across New York City,” says our Co-Founder and CEO, Maurya Couvares.
“Richard will bring his vast experience to our program and will be key in anchoring the oldest and largest region that Code Nation currently serves.”
With Richard’s extensive knowledge of New York’s nonprofit landscape and his impressive connections to the education community, everyone at Code Nation New York is ready to energize and boost its supporter base and offer greater tech career pathways to the students in this exciting city.
