Mobile coding classes for all.

Code Ladder is a fully insured 501(c)(3) dedicated to giving every student the opportunity to learn to code. We provide underserved populations with free coding classes and offer low-cost classes to all other schools, groups, and organizations.  What makes us different from everyone else? In addition to engaging teachers and fun lessons, Code Ladder also provides devices.  Our mobile coding classes deliver everything you need, all you have to do is provide the space and be ready to have fun.

At Code Ladder we are passionate about promoting an open learning environment; by using  Open Education PrinciplesOpen Source Software, and other open materials, we work to ensure everyone has equal access to learning. We can’t do this alone; we need your help.  To reach as many students as possible with free classes, we need you.  Please consider giving your time or money to help give every student the opportunity to learn.
