With a volunteer teaching corps of 300 technology professionals and a powerful network of school and company partners, we bring coding courses and work-based learning programs to students who attend under-resourced high schools.
Students leave Code Nation programs career-ready, with a holistic set of skills, competencies, and resources that set them up for success:
Here are a few of the ways our community is making an impact:
73% of Code Nation alumni are on track for a career in tech – either majoring in computer science or a related field in college, or currently employed in tech.
We partner with schools where 75% or more of the student population qualifies for free or reduced price lunch.
In 2017-18, 79% of Code Nation students identified as Black or Latinx. 41% of our students identified as female.
In 2018-19, we will reach 1,500 students in 46 high schools in New York City and the San Francisco Bay Area.
Founded in 2012 (and formerly known as ScriptEd), Code Nation is rapidly expanding to schools across New York City and the Bay Area. We hope to one day make our program available in cities across the United States. If you want your city to benefit from a program like ours, please send us a message.
