We aim to create an inclusive tech community that is reflective of Queens and New York City.
Access Code equips talented adults from underserved and underrepresented backgrounds with the computer programming skills and entrepreneurial training to launch careers in the tech industry. We are building new pathways to tech for diverse and low-income communities, and in particular empowering the 65% of New Yorkers that do not have college degrees.
This intensive 9-month part-time program in mobile app development prepares participants with no prior coding experience for entry-level developer jobs at the hundreds of innovative startups and tech companies (such as Google and Facebook) that are looking to hire the next generation of talent. These positions are in high demand with well-paid salaries averaging $85,619 across the industry—the first Access Code 1.0 program helped increase graduate average income from $26,000 to $73,000.
With our mission to expand access to tech opportunities, all students will receive full scholarships to Access Code.
The application process for Access Code 2.0 program has closed and we are not currently accepting applications.
