The rundown

Clubs discovering the joy of code.

Hack Clubs typically meet for 1 hour each week in high schools, makerspaces, community centers, churches, and any other venue where teenagers can gather. As a club leader, you get members (mostly beginners) started on something to learn/create, then members work at their own pace, building websites, apps, & games, and presenting them at the end.


A group of teens, many beginners, gather to start coding.The leader (that’s you!) presents for a few minutes, getting the group started building something new.


Everyone gets hacking, individually. Not hacking bank accounts, being creative and making something awesome.


To end, everyone demos their work.As a leader, you’re cultivating a community of makers. Each member showing off their work builds momentum & motivation.

Go beyond club meetings.

Hack Clubs attend and run hackathons like Lion City Hacks & HackOC, take part in year long programs like OnBoard, and compete in events like the Congressional App Challenge. The hack’s the limit.

By the students, for the students.

Learning to code is like gaining a superpower — turning you from a consumer of technology into a creator. It shouldn’t be taught like a class — it should be a creative, inclusive space. To foster this environment, every Hack Club is student-led & members make self-directed projects.

~ The Hack Club Slack ~

Come for the skills,
stay for the people.

Communication and planning for our open source projects happen in the Slack. Coding is often seen as an isolating activity. Plenty of groups exist for kids who are interested in sports, theater, or chess, but the stereotype of a programmer is a person who sits alone in a dark room. It doesn't have to be this way—in the Hack Club Slack (Discord-style online groupchat), you'll find a group of 27,253+ fabulous people to talk to, active at all hours.
