Coding for Girls teaches skills for 6-12 grade students

Coding is becoming the base language for a successful career. Whether working in game design, app development or computer coding, a solid basis in Java, Phython and numerous other coding languages can lead to great careers in the future. But the key is getting early access.

That’s where CodeClubs.org comes into play. The non-profit organization is designed to give access to coding classes to grades 6th through 12th students. The facilitators are all working professionals in the field donating their time. The computers are donated by community members and the students are eager to learn.

Girls Who Code is a subset of the organization, specifically focusing on young female coders. As executive director Paul Perez says, there’s a stark gap in the gender roles of coders and females learning computer programming. As the father of a four-year-old girl, it’s a passion project of his to make these opportunities available.

Classes are ongoing and registration can all be done online.
