Coding Program for San Mateo County

$3,185 of $5,500 goal

Raised by 51 people in 31 months
We are Skyler and Blake, two full-time volunteers serving as AmeriCorps VISTAs. AmeriCorps VISTA is the domestic counterpart to the Peace Corps aimed at fighting poverty in the United States.

We are currently serving a year with Google Code Corps, a collaborative effort between Google, the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, and AmeriCorps VISTA. Google Code Corps aims to fight poverty using computer science education as a tool to enable and empower underserved youth.

This summer we had the amazing opportunity to impact over 130 underserved youth with our computer science program at our host site at the Boys & Girls Clubs of North San Mateo County in South San Francisco. Building upon our success, we are looking to expand our program to multiple sites, and we need your help!

Currently, we do not have the capacity to match the number of interested participants. With your assistance, we would like to use your donations to purchase equipment and handle the administrative costs of running multiple sites in North San Mateo County. 

We are incredibly thankful for any help or support that we receive, as we continue our mission of combatting poverty in the United States. This equipment will allow the computer science programs at the Boys & Girls Clubs of North San Mateo County to thrive even after summer has ended.

Boys & Girls Clubs of North San Mateo County  is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
