What we're about

Mission
Coded by Kids uses project-based education and mentorship to equip underserved and underrepresented youth with the skills and support needed to succeed in a tech-driven society.

Our Organization
Just 10% of employees (http://www.leakytechpipeline.com/) across some of the largest and top-grossing tech companies are Black or Latinx. In our hometown of Philadelphia, that number is even lower--just 6% of all tech employees (https://technical.ly/philly/2017/01/05/stats-diversity-paysa/) come from underrepresented groups.

We need to do more to make sure every student is aware of the opportunities in tech, and has the skills to pursue those opportunities. By making tech education accessible to all students, we can transform the future of the tech industry.

We teach students ages 8 to 18 how to CREATE, not just consume technology. Students leave our classrooms with projects they can show off to family and friends, and a skill set that they can use throughout their lives.
