About All Star Code

demo_day2.jpg

All Star Code is a computer science organization that creates economic opportunity by developing a new generation of boys and young men of color with an entrepreneurial mindset who have the tools they need to succeed in a technological world. We have spent the past six years focused on education, mentorship and access and advocacy in order to close the wealth, income and opportunity gaps and continue along this path in our efforts to help our students succeed.

All Star Code is one of just a few organizations that prepare the underserved group of Black and Latino young men 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 career and tech startup culture. In the past six years, All Star Code has educated 433 young men via All Star Code's flagship “Summer Intensive” program, a six-week course that introduces students to basic web development skills, an entrepreneurial mindset and a network of peers who also love building things that matter.
