We're an award-winning 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization that aims to provide students from low-income families the education and resources required to pursue a career in computer science.

Team

As technology gets more interwoven into the fabric of our lives, coding continues to become an essential skill, like reading, writing, and math. However, the digital divide has been steadily increasing. Recent studies have shown that the tech industry is one of the driving forces contributing to the global socioeconomic gap. Through TheOpenCode Foundation, my team and I aim to bridge this gap, at a global scale.
