Help raise $50,000 to support the development and implementation of the new Citizen Schools program: Coding Academy. 

We will pilot Coding Academy during the 2017-18 school year with at least one cohort of 8th graders, with the goal of expanding to all Citizen Schools New York schools by 2018-19.

Help Reach our $50k Goal:

Funds will support the following:

  • Curriculum design and development for a year-long Coding Academy program that will culminate in students designing their own apps

  • Investment in technology in schools so students can continue their work outside of time spent off-site with their volunteer coding coaches

  • Hiring staff to develop the infrastructure to support this program across all of our schools

  • Hiring Teaching Assistants to chaperone students to corporate partner sites for one-on-one work with their coding mentors
