Code2College provides access and opportunities in Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (STEM) fields to students from underrepresented backgrounds in tech: girls, students of color and from low-income backgrounds. By equipping these students with both technical and professional skills, we endeavor to prepare them for a variety of in-demand, high-paying technical careers.
The mission of Code2College is to dramatically increase the number of minority and low-income high school students who enter and excel in STEM undergraduate majors and careers.
Our belief is that through our approach to Education, Exposure and Experience, we can enhance student preparation for rigorous, technical careers and mitigate some of the key factors around STEM attrition.
In Fall 2016, Code2College launched its inaugural cohort with thirty students from two Austin ISD schools: the Ann Richards School for Young Women Leaders and Akins High School. Of the 30 students, 70% are girls and 90% are students of color.
