CodeCrew directly addresses the diversity and access gap in tech. We offer educational opportunities that 1) teach children and adults to code while mentoring them toward careers in tech fields and 2) provide educators with the tools to increase computer science knowledge for all students. We are introducing an entire generation to the 21st-century skills foundational to individual success.

CodeCrew is directly addressing that access gap in Memphis. By offering educational opportunities that 1) teach children and adults to code while mentoring them toward careers in tech fields and 2) provide educators the tools to increase computer science knowledge for all students, we are introducing an entire generation to the 21st-century skills foundational to individual success.

Our tech education programs do not just teach students how to write code or produce software applications. Our programs enable analytical thinking, encouraging students to focus on big-picture outcomes and detail-level execution while allowing them to develop their leadership skills and take ownership of their decisions. Computer Science training teaches students to take pride in what they do, to accept feedback and peer criticism, and be excited about sharing their work with the world. High levels of quality computer science education will transform students into highly paid employees and entrepreneurs, as well as highly effective citizens. Memphis is finally positioned to become a significant pipeline of African American and Latino tech talent for the future. But we must continue our efforts. Your gift powers our work.
