Students worked in a pair programming environment and teamed up together to build applications. The course started and ended with weekend coding marathons, with students hacking away for 16 hours over two days. We wanted a program where students could learn from each other in a collaborative environment. We are extremely proud to say that our inaugural class is 57% female, 52% underrepresented minorities, and 40% immigrants. To find the most promising students from a range of backgrounds, we partnered with local community institutions such as Upwardly Global, Chhaya, Queens College, and the CUNY Macaulay Honors Program.AdultsQueens, NYJukay

Youth learning, game, onlineCode Kingdoms Kingdoms wants to inspire kids to learn one of the essential creative skills of the 21st Century - coding.

In Code Kingdoms, kids build and protect their own worlds and share them with friends. Code Kingdoms allows kids aged 6 to 13 to learn computational thinking alongside a real coding language, whilst promoting soft skills like problem-solving, teamwork and time management. It encourages kids to experiment with code knowing that it won't always work - breaking things is OK! Getting stuck, debugging and further problem solving are all part of how programming works in the real world.
Adult learning, in-person, underrepresentedCode for Progress for Progress is looking for applicants from communities historically excluded from the process of developing technologies for the social justice movement – low-income people, LGBTQ folks, people of color, and women. We believe that people who can bring their communities’ experience into building the tools we use in the movement are the people who will carry us past roadblocks to building power.

Our year-long program starts with a 16-week residency in Washington DC, where participants learn to code and navigate the professional social justice environment. All participants receive a monthly stipend and housing allowance during their time in DC. Then, we facilitate their transition into jobs at social justice organizations where they can use their skills and experience to enhance organizational capacity. Code for Progress supports our participants post-residency with a vibrant alumni community and professional mentorship team.
