Coded by Kids
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.
Why It Matters
Just 10% of employees 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 come from underrepresented groups.
Coded by Kids teaches students to create, not just consume technology. 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.
Coded by Kids takes a rigorous approach to tech education that raises the bar to industry level. Our programs use a dynamic project-based curriculum taught by experienced instructors who make complex technical concepts engaging and relevant to students ages 8 to 18. We show our students how to create, not just consume technology.
