$35576 Raised of $30,000 Goal (119%)
During the month of April 2018 Mission Bit is asking supporters to help us raise $30,000 to support our continued growth to add more courses across the San Francisco Bay Area. Our goal is to teach 10,000 students how to code by the year 2020. There are 100,000 young people that currently don't have access to computer science courses in the Bay Area. That's 100,000 reasons we need your support. Every little bit counts. If 1,000 people donate $30 we can reach our goal.
Mission Bit strives to eliminate the tech divide for youth living in urban poverty and rural areas across the San Francisco Bay Area by building computer programming and professional opportunity pathways for public school students. We provide everything the students need, they just need to show up and be eager to learn. No prior experience required.
We give students the opportunity to learn directly from successful engineers and entrepreneurs who enjoy sharing knowledge. We're focused on project based learning and aim to teach both core computer science concepts as well as the practical skills and technologies that are required to build web sites and applications today. We currently run classes in San Francisco and Oakland.
