About All Star Code
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. We have spent the past five 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 five years, All Star Code has educated almost 300 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.
