What Companion Coding does

Companion Coding is a non-profit program based in Seattle. Companion Coding introduces low-income minority youth to careers in tech by training them to build websites for real small businesses* in their own communities.

During 4-8 week “bootcamps,” young people gain valuable hands-on experience, build a portfolio, and learn about opportunities in the tech industry, as well as building critical technical, leadership, entrepreneurship, and life skills with mentorship from staff and tech professionals working in the field.

MONTHLY STEM WORKSHOPS

In addition to our Web Development Cohorts, we also hold monthly STEM workshops, exposing youth ages 10 and up to the STEM field.

WEB DEVELOPMENT BOOTCAMPS

Our Web Development cohorts range from 4 weeks to 6 weeks. Where we take inner city under served High Schoolers and teach them to build mobile-responsive websites.

Bringing Tech to underserved communities

While there are plenty coding classes for youth in Seattle, they are not catered towards East African communities living in the South Seattle area. East African youth are less likely than their counterparts in the general population to be exposed to coding and programming early on. Meanwhile, elsewhere in the city, students are starting to program at ten and eleven years old – Companion Coding is here to help change that.
