Learn to code and build apps for the future

We provide a fun, flexible, & easy to digest STEM curriculum that gives each young learner the skills necessary to continue learning how to code with confidence.

In just a few training sessions, children of all levels gain experience with computer & web programming.

We maintain open communication with parents and children to ensure that each child achieves success.

Children are taught by software engineers who have experience in developing full-scale platforms.

Lesson plans built for any scale

Using existing block programming and traditional line programming tools, all remixed by our programming experts, we conduct lessons plans for any age and group size.

An in-depth learning experience

We provide students with access to best-in-industry curriculum that allows each child to tinker, learn at their own pace, and get bonus work that enhances the knowledge they learn in class.

We work closely with each child

We have team members in place to help each child during sessions. Team members are also available for questions outside of class hours to ensure each child is achieving success.

Learn from industry experts

Lessons are taught by technology leader and youth advocate, Omari Edwards and his team. Omari is also the founder of Beak, board member at Mouse, and a member of the NationSwell Council.

Why STEM?

Don't get left behind

"Scientific and technological innovations have become increasingly important as we face the benefits and challenges of both globalization and a knowledge-based economy.

Lack of diversity

Woman represent 29 percent of the engineering workforce (down from 25 percent in 2001) and 36 percent of the computing workforce (flat since 2001)...Minority individuals make up 29 percent of the U.S. workforce, but represent approximately 14 percent of computing and engineering jobs...READ FULL ARTICLE

About the Founder

Omari Edwards is a technology entrepreneur, youth advocate, and a mentor in the tech startup community. Recognizing the greater economic need to increase the technology knowledge-base in the youth, he went on to host a series of tech learning events that led to the creation of the Technology for {You}th program. The program has since expanded, and now its goal is to provide young and adult learners with the skills to learn how to code and problem solve for the future.
In addition to Technology for {You}th, Omari is also the founder of Beak (an analytics software platform), the founder of Tech Connect (a tech-focused internship program), a board member at Mouse (the nation's leading technology proficiency non-profit), a member of the NationSwell Council (a membership community of service-minded leaders), and a volunteer at CSNYC and Google's Code Next. Omari has a B.S. in Mathematics and Computer Science from Morehouse College and an M.S. in Systems Engineering from the University of Pennsylvania. When Omari is not busy working on tech startups or teaching children, he enjoys spending time with his wife and 2 children.
