Clubs in action

Build superpowers at your club.

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.

Members leave every meeting with a project—including their first day. Check out a first website & game built at Hack Clubs.

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.

Go beyond club meetings.

Hack Clubs attend and run hackathons like Windy City Hacks & Hack the Fog, run summer programs like Hack Camp, and compete in events like the Congressional App Challenge. The hack’s the limit.

Start a new club, or bring yours. We’re excited to meet you.

When established CS clubs join, they get all the benefits of the network. While we’re currently optimized for new clubs, we’re continually increasing benefits for existing clubs through new projects like Bank & Hackathons.

Philosophy

By the students, for the students.

Every Hack Club is always student-led. Students naturally build the culture of empowerment so key to success. Teachers can help by marketing the club & getting access to school resources.
