Train a coder, change a life. Together, we can shatter barriers in technology spaces.

The tech talent pipeline is 600,000 technologists short. Women and people of color are significantly underrepresented in the talent pool due to a lack of exposure and opportunity. Our courses invest in non-traditional talent, raising the earning potential of often-overlooked individuals while building a more equitable tech economy that benefits everyone. Many of our students report a significant increase in yearly earnings after completing just one of our courses.

Your donation has a measurable impact on our community.

Since the start of this year, we have been able to upskill over 700 people with your support!

Help us break even more barriers in 2023.

    • For just $300, you can support the cost of a child attending a technology summer camp.
    • For just $100, your support can help fund a laptop for a student that does not have one.
    • For just $50, your support can help fund internet hotspot access for someone that does not have access to reliable internet to attend classes.

A donation in any amount can help a young person learn to code or help an adult learner upskill and gain a pathway into a tech sector career!

Unleashing Potential

We believe that undiscovered tech talent is everywhere, but opportunities are lacking for women and BIPOC individuals. We raise that talent up and provide a clear path forward for accessing tech job opportunities.

Creating Opportunity

Four year degrees are unattainable for many. Our reduced-cost, hands-on courses get people coding in weeks, not years. Over 90% of our students obtain scholarships or financial aid to cover the cost of some (or all) of their tuition.

Building Communities

We connect employers, funders, fellow nonprofits, and higher education partners with our students to create a robust hiring pipeline.
