At Black Boys Code, our significance is clear. There’s an undeniable diversity gap in the computer sciences and related fields, and we’re here to bridge that divide. Through our workshops, we introduce Black boys to Black male industry role models who serve as living proof that success isn’t just a lofty dream; it’s a tangible and attainable reality in the world of computer science and technology. We dismantle barriers and showcase that success in these fields is not the exception, but the norm.
Our educational approach is built on inclusiveness, encouragement, and empowerment. We are in the business of igniting a deep passion for technology in Black boys, inspiring them to dive headfirst into the world of tech.


Through our exposure workshops, hackathons, after-school programs, and summer tech camps, we’ve reached thousands of boys in the Black community and sparked their interest and aptitude for technology. We’re shaping them to become the leaders of tomorrow, instilling them with the confidence to make a lasting impact in the ever-changing world of technology.
