Mission Statement

Government can work for the people, by the people, in the digital age. We believe government at all levels can and should work well for all people. We use insights and ideas from real people to guide us to real solutions that break down barriers to meet community needs and improve government in meaningful ways. Let’s make it work for everyone.

Description

Code for America is committed to building a team as diverse as the nation we serve. We’re made up of people-centered problem solvers: technologists, advocates, storytellers, and organizers from many different backgrounds and communities around the country. We merge the best parts of technology, nonprofit, and government.

We believe government at all levels can and should work well for everyone- and the mindful use of technology makes it possible.

We’re known for building digital tools, but the work doesn’t stop there. We seek to transform government by showing what’s possible when communities are included in policy and service design. We use insights and ideas from real people to guide us to real solutions that break down barriers to meet community needs and improve government in meaningful ways.

Code for America has given me beyond what I could have ever asked for in terms of connections, opportunities to develop my skillsets while learning new ones, and ways to give back to communities that have done so much for me while growing up! If you're interested in the tech industry, civil work, or just like to explore options, I think think this is something to definitely look into!

There has been absolutely no communication from the organization after I was asked to join their slack.
