The Mission

C4Q is a non-profit that is building an inclusive tech community in NYC and increasing economic mobility through technology.

C4Q’s Access Code program produces high quality mobile developers through an intensive 9-month curriculum developed and taught by industry experts. Our graduates are being hired at leading tech companies such as Pinterest, OKCupid, NBCUniversal, Jet, and many others. Access Code class demographics are reflective of the NYC tech community we aim to build, with 50% women, 60% black or Hispanic, and 50% immigrants.
