♪♪ (string orchestra)
Volunteer: Coding, it's more of an art form.
Volunteer: We are solving problems in the real world using computer technologies.
Volunteer: When I saw the opportunity to give back through programs like Code for Good, I thought okay, I need to do this.
Derek: With Code for Good, we get students to come in to J.P. Morgan Chase, work on a project with us.
Paul: And they have 24 hours to work on solutions for a number of different charities across the globe.
Mentor: They are basically going to pitch a challenge to you.
Mentor: Your mission is to design an application to manage all our courses.
Opeyemi: Students who are passionate about technology and about giving back get the opportunity to make a difference. Your coding time starts now.
Lucia: It's all about working together as a team.
Volunteer: Right now they're tracking everything on paper.
Volunteer: This collaboration was something new for all of us. We start pushing stuff from the queue onto the server.
Students: Go, go. No, go up.
Andreas: We're constantly going back and forth.
Student: Code for Good is like running a marathon.
Nicole: At 2 a.m. we had to scrap our ideas and start again.
Student: Tiredness will start to creep in. Apparently there's a room where you can nap.
Brandon: As a firm, we're in a great position to leverage the experience that we have.
Volunteer: We have technical mentors that sit with the students.
Student: I don't know where to start to make sure that it's user friendly.
Richard: Students are getting to see what our people are like, and we get to really see the technical ability they have under stress. So, it's really good for recruitment.
Paul: We need to make sure all the code is uploaded by 12 o'clock.
Nicole: Well I've learned that J.P. Morgan is really more than just a bank.
Volunteer: Everything in the firm is driven by technology.
Opeyemi: Just under 10 minutes to go.
Chris: Each student who are interested in coding, they're interested in solving problems and that's what J.P.Morgan needs. It's employees.
Opeyemi: 5-4-3-2-1. Stop coding!
[clapping and cheering]
Ed: There's a real sense from inside the firm of people wanting to give back to the communities that we serve and operate in. And I think it's important to note that there's things bigger than all of us. You have produced some great, innovative ideas that these charities can benefit from. So there is a big, big thank you to all of you.
Andreas: The ability to persevere through and really see a result out of it is such a beautiful thing.
Volunteer: At the end of the day you are helping non-profits work on real-life problems.
Volunteer: And we've only just scratched the surface of what is possible.
Opeyemi: At J.P. Morgan you get to give back, you get to do something that adds value to the world at large.
Nicole: And it just inspires me to want to join a corporation like this.
Ed: If you can help out charities and do what you love at the same time, it's sort of a win-win for both. And that's something that they can take with them whatever they do in the future.
