About Us

Hackademy is a social innovation venture teaching coding and technology literacy via face-to-face learning and community mentorship. We are committed to providing an open and welcoming environment for all, particularly those groups who have traditionally faced barriers in entering technical fields. We believe that knowledge of coding and other technologies is the new literacy for the digital age.

However, certain demographic groups are cut off from this new literacy and face issues with access to building and maintaining a career in the STEM fields (science, technology, engineering, and math). We believe experiential learning is the best way to develop excitement and skills that promote success in STEM for all, and are committed to supporting these groups through targeted workshops in addition to our regular curriculum.

Want to get involved? Hackademy provides an opportunity for tech talent to contribute to the local knowledge economy within a supportive community, sharing their skills and inspiring new generations of STEM professionals. Our community “garden” of students and mentors will self-seed: as novices gain knowledge they will in turn be able to encourage and teach others.
