Mission Statement

Bytes for Bits is a non-profit organization working to inspire, educate, and equip students with the skills and resources to pursue their interests in coding. Our mission is to help children develop the necessary Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) skills within a creative and collaborative environment. All children, regardless of socioeconomic, gender, or ethnic background, should have the opportunity to learn to code.

Description

Bytes for Bits is a weekly after school program for elementary school kids, teaching the fundamentals of software coding using the Scratch platform developed out of MIT. Our mission is to educate children in a manner that not only develops the necessary STEM skills but also does so within a creative, collaborative, and fun environment.

Our classes occur at over 10 elementary schools across San Francisco and the East Bay. By offering classes at the actual school, it enables children of dual-working parents to attend coding without requiring transport to an offsite location.

In addition to school sites, Bytes for Bits partners with community supportive organizations such as Boys' and Girls' Club and YMCA, to offering classes during summer camp(s) and after school.
