ScriptEd

ScriptEd equips students in under-resourced schools with the fundamental coding skills and professional experiences that together create access to careers in technology.

ScriptEd (scripted.org) is a non-profit organization that equips students in under-resourced schools with the fundamental coding skills and professional experiences that together create access to careers in technology.

We bring our tuition-free program directly to schools, where classes are taught by software developers on a volunteer basis. Students apply their new coding skills in paid summer internships where they work with role models in the field as well as gain the experience and confidence necessary to pursue a career in technology.

We are nimble, efficient, impactful, and growing. We currently serve 600 students in 30 high schools in NYC. We are committed to reaching as many students as possible while maintaining the highest quality of rogramming.
