In the US alone, 3 in 4 high schools don’t offer any coding classes. We’re setting out to help students change that.

We think coding is a superpower that anyone can learn and our goal is to provide every student, regardless of ethnicity, gender, or socioeconomic status, the opportunity to learn to code

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Hack Club?

We're a San Francisco based nonprofit that works with high schoolers to start after-school coding clubs. We provide everything needed to start a successful chapter at your school – curriculum for club meetings, facilitation guidelines, and an online community of club leaders from around the globe.

What does a Hack Club look like?

Hack Clubs meet after-school once or twice a week for an hour and a half. The structure varies club to club, but most meetings involve members learning to code by working on real projects, like apps, websites, and games.

What is hacking?

When we say "hack", we're referring to solving problems cleverly with code – just like "life hacking", except with computers. We're not here to break into anyone's bank accounts.

When members of Hack Clubs hack, they're building apps, websites, games, and anything else you can imagine.
