Future of Code is a student-founded nonprofit organization that targets a lack of coding resources available to young students while also giving back to the community.
The organization hosts hackathons, guest speaker events, and workshops to help students learn coding skills, collaboration skills and presentation skills.
Officials say their events have impacted more than 180 young students and their recent coding workshop raised more than $500 that will go to charity.
Srjana Srivatsa and Julia Duan, executive directors and co-founders of Future of Code, joined our show to talk more about the organization.
