The world of tech is inequitable – it’s broken like code.
We’re here to fix that.
Only 25% of computer science roles are held by women. Only 8% are held by women of color.
Systemic and cultural barriers make it more difficult for women, nonbinary, trans, and people of color to enter the industry. We’re building a more inclusive tech industry by creating STEAM-based educational
opportunities for those who are least likely to find them elsewhere. Kode With Klossy equips scholars with essential coding skills and a safe community that will help them not only enter and navigate tech-based fields, but flourish and shift the culture.
Our camps are diverse
countries represented in in-person and virtual camps
of scholars identify as people of color
of scholars qualify for free and reduced lunch
OUR IMPACT IS TANGIBLE
prior to camp, only 1 in 5 scholars have any computer science experience
as a result of their camp experience 9/10 scholars plan to pursue opportunities in computer science
of women nationally choose to pursue degrees in computer science or a related engineering field
of Kode With Klossy alumni in college have chosen to pursue majors or minors in computer science or engineering
“Above all [Kode With Klossy] gave me a safe space to get interested in something foreign to me. It gave me a chance and I want everyone to have that kind of open, productive, enlightening experience.”
"Because of [Kode With Klossy], I can walk into a computer science class and connect with topics I’ve learned in camp. I also have the confidence to answer the teacher’s questions, and I can even teach concepts to others."
“I could not have asked for a better working environment, and I looked forward to going to camp each day. The KWK community is truly so special and I felt extremely cared for each step of the way. All of the instructional teams I worked on this year were kind and supportive, and I made many lasting connections - both with other IAs and with the scholars.”
“I’ve had a such a pleasant and rewarding experience [at] KWK. This is a workspace and community in which I felt truly appreciated by both the KWK staff and scholars. It’s a company that I take pride in representing, and being part of community.”
