Our Mission

We believe that people from every community and background should have the opportunity to learn to code, gain jobs in tech, and create companies of the future.


From Mechanic to Software Engineer

C4Q teaches coding and professional skills to talented adults from diverse and low-income backgrounds.

Our 10-month program prepares individuals for software engineering jobs at companies like Kickstarter, Capital One, and IBM. Our graduates have gone from working as waiters and admin assistants to writing code at some of the most innovative tech companies. Students have gone from making $18,000 to over $85,000 a year on average.

Inclusive & Diverse

Creating an Inclusive Tech Community

Our program demographics reflect the community that we want to build with students from across New York City and from all backgrounds. Beyond being gender balanced and empowering underrepresented minorities, over half of our students do not have college degrees.
