Hack Club is a global network of programming clubs where members learn to code through tinkering and building projects.
During COVID-19, join the community on Slack to participate. We’re also still accepting club applications on a rolling basis.
Clubs in action
Hack Clubs meet weekly at their high schools, typically for 1.5hrs after school. There are no teachers or lectures—members work at their own pace making websites, apps, & games, and presenting them to the group. As a club leader, you act as a facilitator, mentoring members and building a supportive community.
A group of students gather to start coding. Many are beginners.
Everyone starts hacking. At the first few meetings, members follow our tutorials as a runway before taking off with their own projects.
Members work on self-directed coding projects, learning by making.
At the end, everyone demos their projects for the club.
Demos bring the club together. As the leader, you’re cultivating a community of makers. Demos highlight new work & momentum.
