ABOUT ALL STAR CODE

All Star Code (ASC) is a youth education nonprofit-startup dedicated to closing the opportunity gap between young men of color and the tech industry. ASC prepares high school males of color (14 – 17 years old) for tech careers through providing mentorship, industry exposure, and training in Computer Science (CS). Unlike most coding programs that focus solely on CS skills, we teach our students interpersonal skills in a tech startup context.

Through year-round events, our 6-week Summer Intensive program, and ongoing alumni activities, young men of color gain the skills, networks, and system know-how needed to become the next generation of tech leaders. Ultimately, our alumni will establish tech careers that boost American innovation, create jobs, equalize opportunity, and help companies leverage the untapped talent of minority communities.
