Our Mission

The Youth Coding League offers access to education, exploration, and mentorship to foster talent to fuel local companies and help individuals develop highly demanded skills for careers in the tech economy. Children are growing up in a world immersed in technology—give them a head start with our youth programs.

Why This is Important

Computer programming jobs are one of the most needed, fastest growing, and highest paid occupations now and will be for the future. These skills are critically important to students and the jobs of the future. However, most schools in our region either don't teach these skills, or aren't able because of knowledge gaps, resources, accessibility, etc.

Sponsorship Tiers

It is our goal to always offer the Youth Coding League for free to schools. In the past, we have been able to do so by applying for grants and because of a very generous donor. You can help make sure the Youth Coding League continues to be offered for free to your school. All support directly supports your school, is tax deductible, and made to the Codefi Foundation on Rural Innovation, a 501(c)3 non-profit.
