Technology students in college have the opportunity to use their skills to help
charities


NEW YORK--(Business Wire)--


JPMorgan Chase (NYSE: JPM) announced today the launch of the Code for Good
Challenges in the United States. Building off a successful launch in the United
Kingdom, the Code for Good Challenges will bring together college students
studying technology to develop solutions to challenges faced by nonprofits
during an intense two-day event. 

"We`re excited for the Code for Good Challenge kickoff in the U.S," said Guy
Chiarello, JPMorgan Chase`s Chief Information Officer. "The program offers a
unique opportunity for participants to use their skills to benefit nonprofits,
while also demonstrating their technology abilities to a leading global
organization. It`s a win for all involved." 

The series of U.S.-based events will kickoff off in New York, Delaware and Ohio,
and will continue in other JPMorgan Chase locations throughout 2013. Dates of
the first U.S. events:

* New York, NY: February 23 - February 24 
* Newark, DE: March 1 - March 2 
* Columbus, OH: March 2 - March 3

Participants at each event will be placed into teams and tasked with working
together to creatively solve a challenge faced by a local nonprofit
organization. JPMorgan Chase technologists will also be involved, advising
participants throughout the course of the event. A panel of judges will
determine the winning team, which will be announced at the culmination of the
2-day event. 

College students majoring in a technology-related field at universities in the
Northeast, Mid-Atlantic or Midwest who would like the opportunity to put their
coding skills to use for a good cause, should apply by visiting
http://techcareers.jpmorganchase.com/opportunities/ and selecting the event in
their region (New York - Northeast/ Delaware - Mid-Atlantic/Ohio - Midwest). 

The deadline to apply for the New York event is February 10 and the deadline for
the Newark and Columbus events is February 18.
