Young People + Technology = Our Future
The equation is simple: Young people plus technology is our future. It seems natural, then, that young people who embrace technology are putting all of us in the best position for what happens next. Young people who can help create technology are the ones who’ll lead the way.

WHY WE DO WHAT DO WE DO
Coding represents different things to different people.
In the literal sense, it’s the process of writing those basic instructions that run technology. In the figurative or metaphoric sense, it represents serious strides in the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) fields. Both are important. Both give way to serious innovation. Both move us deeper into the 21st Century.
There’s a reason we’re doing this. Students who have experience with computer programming are more likely to get a high-paying job straight out of college. On average, computer science majors earn 40 percent than peers who have not studied computer science.
We exist to level the playing field and provide more young people with opportunities to pursue careers in coding and product development. It’s social justice, IT style. And it works.
