Code Savvy (www.codesavvy.org) is a not-for-profit program that gives kids and teens the opportunity to learn about the creative thinking that goes into coding and also giving them the chance to try out different kinds of computers and tech devices they may not normally be exposed to. Code Savvy is also dedicated to the goal of bringing more diversity to computer science, both gender & ethnic.
Code Savvy programs are currently seeking volunteers for various programs including:
