All Star Code is a leading national organization educating young men of color in computer science and exposing them to tech entrepreneurship that will provide them with the tools they need to succeed in the technology industry.

Few organizations prepare this underserved group for careers in the innovation economy. Unlike most coding programs, All Star Code doesn’t just focus on computer science—we also introduce soft skills that are important for a thriving career in any field.

All Star Code has educated almost 300 young men via our flagship “Summer Intensive” program, a six-week course that introduces students to essential web development skills, while cultivating an entrepreneurial mindset and a network of peers who also love building things that matter.

95%of our All Stars have matriculated to four-year colleges, over a third of which are top 100-ranked universities. 85%of our graduates plan to major in computer science or a related field.

All Star Code’s Summer Intensives are hosted at tech companies, financial institutions, and enriching sites throughout New York City and Pittsburgh with expansion to new cities coming soon.

Our past All Star Code Summer Intensives have been hosted at sites including Facebook, Cisco, Bond Collective, JP Morgan, Goldman Sachs, Oath, and MLB Advanced Media in NYC, and Chatham University with more organizations joining each year.
