The Problem

Four out of five students who pursue tech careers decide to do so in high school, but young people growing up in low-income circumstances have less access to computer science courses, internship opportunities, and role models that launch careers in tech.

Our Approach

With a volunteer teaching corps of hundreds of professional web and software developers, Code Nation mobilizes the tech community to provide tuition-free coding courses and work-based learning programs to students who attend under-resourced schools.
