Founding Story:

Code 4 Tomorrow Founding Story Picture


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 to enable 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.



Our Core Values:

Code 4 Tomorrow's Core Values
    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
