A non-profit aimed at developing more programmers in St. Louis is launching a new center on the north side.
The LaunchCode Mentor Center will open its doors Thursday evening at 4811 Delmar Boulevard, in a former state unemployment office.
Center director Chris Bay said they hope to engage the surrounding Fountain Park neighborhood with the kickoff event.
"We want people to not just come and celebrate and see a ribbon being cut. We want people to interact," he said.
