We are CoderDojo NYC
CoderDojo NYC is a volunteer 501(c)3 non-profit program that provides out-of-school learning experiences for youth ages 7-17 to explore web, game & app development.
CoderDojo NYC provides open access for exploring, developing and teaching web, game and app development skills.
Our mission is to create a fun, creative, collaborative environment to explore STEM*. Through play, youth can build memorable experiences with mentors to ignite passion for technology at an early age.
Rebecca Garcia and Carl Sednaoui co-founded the NYC chapter in 2012. We've now grown to host monthly workshops, long-term programs and reach over 1,400 families across the Greater New York area annually.
CoderDojo NYC is a program of School Factory.
We are an independent chapter, unaffiliated with any other organizations such as CoderDojo Long Island or CoderDojo USA.
CoderDojo is a worldwide movement of free, volunteer-led, community-based programming clubs for young people. Anyone aged seven to seventeen can visit a Dojo where they can learn to code, build a website, create an app or a game, and explore technology in an informal, creative, and social environment.
The CoderDojo movement believes that an understanding of programming languages is increasingly important in the modern world, that it’s both better and easier to learn these skills early, and that nobody should be denied the opportunity to do so.
CoderDojo was co-founded by James Whelton and Bill Liao in Ireland in 2012. Visit CoderDojo.com for more info.
