Coding is the new literacy. It gives individuals the power to innovate and create. We need to empower our youth – especially those from underrepresented communities – to be the next great technology pioneers.
CodeNow teaches underrepresented high school students foundational skills in computer programming through free extra curricular off campus trainings. This is essential because it lowers the barriers normally associated with programming by opening the door at an earlier stage when youths are just beginning to explore their options and opportunities.
Since launching in 2011 CodeNow provided more than 2,500 hours of free training and awarded 53 Netbooks. Nearly 40% of our students are girls.
Read, Write, Innovate!
