Clubs in action

Build superpowers at your club.

Hack Clubs meet weekly at their high schools, typically for 1.5 hours 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. Presentations highlight new work and momentum. As a leader, you’re cultivating a community of makers.

Go beyond club meetings.

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