Mutual Aid Grants

We send out four mutual aid grants a month to help keep people housed, fed, connected, and alive.

Thank you so much @stimpunks for supporting & believing in me & my artwork.

It’s okay to be you. It’s okay to be different. It’s okay to have a disability. Never give up on yourself.

I want to say thank you and tell you you made a big difference in someone’s life today. I can’t stop crying. I’ve never felt understood or seen like this before. I’m desperately looking for community, perspective, support, tools to survive and feel backed into a corner.

I’m honestly in tears right now because of you guys.

Thank you so, so much for caring about my family. Thank you for sharing your kindness & support.

Thank you for reaching out! I’m doing well – thanks to your generosity as well as some other donations I was fortunate to receive, I was able to trade my car for a van and order a lift for the wheelchair! The lift won’t be here until the end of March, but I’m SO excited to finally be free to use my wheelchair out in the world! Thank you SO much for your donation!!

Oh my gosh, thank you SO MUCH! This is truly amazing!

Extremely blessed to be able to get my procedure and medication. Huge thank you to @stimpunks. I’m honestly in tears, thank you guys so much.

Thank you so much. This is exactly what I needed right when I needed it. Y’all are heros. I appreciate your help.

Thank you all so very much! This is a very beautiful thing your team is doing and gives me hope for our society.

Deeply appreciative of this and all of you at Stimpunks, thank you so much! This is an extremely impactful relief.

Again, thank you so much for everything you’ve provided. Stimpunks is doing wonderful work. Our needs may be great, but our gratitude when we receive what we need is even greater. 💕

It shocked me, humbled me, and made me wonder how you were able to do what you did for me!

I can’t believe how incredible y’all are. I’m in tears. This is the biggest thing that’s ever happened to me like this.

My partner told me about you and when I saw your mission page I cried for like an hour because it resonated so strongly.

Thank you so much for the support. I truly appreciate it! It’s really nice to connect with others who “get it” too!

Thank you so deeply for your help and for your care of others.

Thank you so much for reaching out and I cannot express how grateful I am to have been selected! This is going to be a massive weight lifted off my shoulders!

You made someone struggling alone feel a little better and less lonely today.

Nicole Archambault

Portrait of a woman with long hair and glasses

I’m Nicole Archambault, and I’m an Educational Technology specialist and entrepreneur. My background is in Front-End Web Development, as a self-taught Web Developer. I directed my own education in order to learn the skills required to deliver a personalized and engaging experience for our users.

As kind of a TL;DR: I work largely in the intersection of technology, education, and psychology—it’s super sexy to me, and I honestly can’t see myself doing anything else!

Fueled by my passion, I create online courses for people teaching themselves to code. I love teaching and learning along my students. And these courses I make… have no actual code in them!

Being able to teach technical topics to web developers without boxing them into a specific technology is a skill that not many tech course creators have, but I LOVE the challenge. I want people learning to code to understand the fundamentals, which never change—not just the tech itself.

But of course, I don’t just limit myself to my “work” (which is actually more like play, if we’re being honest).

Why do I do this, though?

Well, I struggled with learning as a child, teenager, and adult. When I was 31, I was diagnosed with a Non-Verbal Learning Disability, as well as Autism Spectrum Disorder.

As I dug into what these diagnoses meant for those life, those learning struggles began to make so much more sense to me, as I realized that I would struggle with any aspect of learning, as long as I couldn’t mentally “model” it. I needed to be able to “see” a concept in my mind’s eye in order to make it click. This realization led me to share my experience with others… and sure enough, there were SO MANY PEOPLE being affected by this same challenge.

I’m Nicole Archambault, and I’m going to be your dedicated Course Creator School leader!

I’m a professional web developer, and I’ve been creating successful online courses since 2017, when I launched my own educational technology business, La Vie en Code, dedicated to guiding career careers into the web development industry by combining courses and coaching.

Coaching is one of the most fun experiences of my life, and I love seeing how people evolve over time as they embrace and learn from their (many!) mistakes and keep moving forward toward their dreams.

First off, online courses f&*%ing rock! 🤩 They changed the entire trajectory of my life in every way by providing me, as a neuroatypical learner, a way to absorb information in my own way, on my own time.

My sincere hope is that Course Creator School will help you find success with your own educational technology career by embracing online courses as both a substantial means of wealth, as well as a way to give back your knowledge to the rest of the world.
