ABOUT US

There is significant social and economic inequity created when people from underrepresented groups aren’t able to participate in the tech and innovation economies. We use tech and innovation education to fight that inequity. Through our work, we now have students attending college majoring in tech and computer science-related majors, some are working for us, and others are trying to launch startups.

Our Mission & Vision


Our mission is to prepare underrepresented young people to succeed as tech and innovation leaders through project-based learning and mentorship.

Our vision is to create equity in the world through technology and innovation.

What We Do & How We Do It


Coded by Kids provides young people between the ages of 8 and 18, from underrepresented groups with software development, digital design, computer science, and tech startup-focused entrepreneurship education programs.

Our programs are designed to provide young people of all backgrounds with beginner to advanced level tech skills in areas where the lack of diversity, equity, and inclusion are the greatest. Through our programs, we focus on preparing our students for career and entrepreneurship opportunities with significant earning and growth potential.

Our students are able to participate in our programs over the course of multiple years, progressively increasing their skill level and experience. Using a structured multi-year program model allows us to provide our students with the level of support necessary to become the next generation of tech and innovation leaders.

We utilize project-based learning to ensure that our students are learning in highly engaging environments and gaining real-world skills. We connect our students to mentors who come from tech and innovation to ensure they have a network and support system of professionals around them.
