About Teens Can Code
Teens in rural Africa face marginalization in terms of opportunities and quality education, they do not have equal playing ground like their counterparts in urban areas. At Teens Can Code we want to bridge this gap, we believe that the opportunity every child has should not be determined by where they live or the status of their parents.
We are bringing educational opportunities in technology to teens in low-income communities through problem solving and coding. The future of our world is digital and to prepare humanity for the years ahead, we need more of our children to learn how technology works, regardless of their future profession.
We want to help prepare our teenagers for the future by providing them with a rich foundation in critical thinking, problem-solving and coding, these skills are so valuable for success in today’s dynamic world. Learning to code prepares young people for the world we live in today. IT IS THEIR FUTURE!
Teens Can Code is an organization helping to expand access to computer science classes through problem-solving and coding.
Through conferences, events and school career day programs.
