The Founding Story

Code 4 Tomorrow’s roots lie in Code It Bay Area (CIBA), a local Bay Area, dozen-sized volunteer group that lasted for 3 years until March 2020, when only two active members (Ansh Nagwekar and Jyoti Rani) remained. However, when the global pandemic struck, the students decided to step up, unite, and collaborate to aid the 1 billion children out of school. That’s when Code 4 Tomorrow launched and became an official non-profit. In just a few weeks, students with similar interests gathered at Code 4 Tomorrow, forming a team of 30+ dedicated members. Though the pandemic presented numerous difficulties, the students' resilience completely restructured the organization. New teams were formed to create new custom online courses and facilitate multiple partnerships enabling global expansion.

Ranging from New York to Lebanon, our students now enjoy over 7 different courses taught by 60+ teachers, and our dedicated volunteer team continues to broaden our impact and spread our mission. The C4T Family has always had a focus on empowering the underprivileged. Especially given the context of today’s world, where solutions to societal problems lie in innovation and technology, we believe that improving access to technical education and resources is the best way to uplift the underrepresented. So, we’re here to teach them those skills, turning today's students into tomorrow's innovators.

Core Values

image
Empathy is...
  • Understanding that we have a responsibility to make STEM education accessible to as many people as we can because not everyone has the same resources and accessibility to those resources as we do
  • Empathizing with others and showing respect regardless of their background, socioeconomic status, gender, religion, race, sexual orientation, etc.
  • Acting in a kind, courteous, and professional way
Integrity is...
  • Doing the right thing especially if no one is looking
  • Giving proper credit where credit is due
  • Owning up to your mistakes and learning from them
Initiative is...
  • Working to improve the state of the world now rather than later, because we know education is urgently needed to solve the world’s problems
  • Proactively completing tasks
  • Thinking about the future of the organization, not just how it is now
  • Demonstrating leadership, especially (but not only) if you are part of the leadership team

Reviews

"I was able to get questions answered quickly and easily by the personnel." -Anonymous Parent

"Both the Python and Java teachers were great in communication and excellent in explaining the topics. At times, we saw the teachers were 5 mins before the class to make sure the class started on time. My son did enjoy the covered topics." -Anonymous Parent

"Teachers were amazing and taught the basics very well to the children." -Anonymous Parent

"My teacher was very good. He talked at a very understandable pace and was easy to understand. He always asked if he was going too fast or too slow and when someone said he was, he would change his pace and check on them every 10-20 minutes if he was going at a good pace now. Also, whenever someone asked him a question he answered it very enthusiastically as if he was happy that we where asking questions. This encouraged us to ask questions about anything we didn't understand because he gladly explained the answer to our question. Even if it wasn't a very good question, he would explain it." -Anonymous Student
