Impact Report

LaunchCode is an innovative non-profit providing opportunities to enter the field of technology by providing free tech education, job training and apprenticeship job placements. Placing driven, qualified workers into upwardly mobile careers with employers who need fresh tech talent empowers individuals, improves teams and benefits the whole community.

Thanks to our generous community of supporters, we are able to keep LaunchCode’s programs free to all students and apprentices. Your critical support makes this life-changing work possible.

One of the best things at the Mentor Center in 2017 was all the touching stories of empowerment shared by LaunchCoders on the story wall at our annual GeekGala event. (We may have even teared up a bit.) Our favorite:

"LaunchCode has provided my husband and myself with an education and a way into an amazing and fulfilling field. We have also been embraced by this awesome and inclusive community. We are eternally grateful!" — Nadia

Busy Schedules, Full Hearts

This year we placed 282 people into new jobs. That’s 31% more than last year and 69% more than the year before that. Sometimes it’s hard to believe we get to do this for a living. Thanks to all of the LaunchCode family and supporters who help make this work possible, more hard-working people get a chance to land the tech job of their dreams, no matter where they’re starting out. From new classes to niche technology programs customized specifically for individual employer partners, whole communities benefit from all this good work. Thank you.
