Description

Hack Club (501(c)(3) nonprofit) is a community of teenagers around the world who are learning technology by building things they care about and sharing with other people. Hack Club is where teenage coders make friends, build together, and get inspiration.

If a teenager is coding outside of class, that’s Hack Club, and we’re here to try and create the most incredible learning community, tools, and services to support them to go far technically, and also grow personally with positive values.

Hack Club supports and grows our community by facilitating wholesome social spaces such as the online community and hackathons across the country, creating needed tools to support the ecosystem like Hack Club Bank and /z (a tool to create Zoom called used by 10,000+ students last year), providing resources and inspiration like workshops and AMAs, and having pathways to get involved in impressive collaborative open source projects such as building handheld game consoles, creating Hack Club Bank, making guides to assembly, and so on.

Hack Club is a shared interest, centered around a shared activity, with a shared ethic. We serve about 20,000 teenagers every year.
