About us

Founded in 2012, ScriptEd is a start-up non-profit organization that aims to increase access to careers in technology by offering computer-programming classes in low-income high schools. ScriptEd's courses are taught by experienced computer programming professionals on a volunteer basis, ensuring that students not only have exposure to the most up-to-date knowledge available, but also role models and potential mentors in the field. In addition, ScriptEd links students to internship opportunities to gain professional experience in which to apply their coding skills.

In its first year, ScriptEd's program served 27 students in two high schools in Harlem, NewYork, and placed four of its students in internships at technology firms. Our students learned the fundamentals of Javascript, HTML, and CSS, and participated in field trip and job shadowing opportunities throughout the year. This school year, ScriptEd will serve about 600 students in over 30 high schools in NYC. We are committed to reaching as many students as possible while maintaining the highest quality of programming.

ScriptEd won the Dewey Winburne Community Service Award fromSouth by Southwest, the Judges' Choice Award in theMillennial Impact Challenge from IGNITEgood and Huffington Post, the Teach for AmericaSocial Innovation Award, and theEmerging Innovator Awardfrom American Express and Ashoka. ScriptEd has been recognized by the White House as a Champion of Change for Tech Inclusion, has been featured in Smithsonian,Time,Huffington Post,CBS and theChronicle of Philanthropy, and its Co-Founder Maurya Couvares was a featured speaker at TEDxNYED.
