Futures in Technology

What We Do

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

Engage Volunteers

Our courses are taught by experienced software developers on a volunteer basis, ensuring that our students have exposure to role models and potential mentors in the field.

Teach in Schools

We bring our tuition-free program directly to schools. Our curriculum is created in collaboration with our volunteers, ensuring students have exposure to the most up-to-date knowledge available.

Link to Internships

Our students apply their new coding skills in paid summer internships where they gain the experience and confidence necessary to pursue careers in technology.

The Problem

The technology industry is growing faster than ever, but new, diverse talent is becoming harder and harder to find.

1 out of 10
Currently, only 1 out of 10 high schools in the U.S. offer computer science classes.
1 Million
By the year 2020, one million technology jobs will go unfilled.
Since 2005, there has been a 33% decline in computer science offerings in schools.
4 in 5
Most Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics professionals choose their career in high school or earlier.
More than 75% of students in our partner schools qualify for free or reduced price lunch.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that by 2018 there will be 800,000 new technology jobs.

Being able to have a glimpse of the programming world and work with professionals is a really outstanding and rare experience for me as a high school junior…I’ll treasure the experience I’ve gathered so far for the day that I walk on the same career path.

I have been able to learn so many things in just a short amount of time…having this opportunity to work at such a renowned company was due to ScriptEd and their great connections. Reasons like this make me glad that I joined this class because it really opened a new world up for me.

Yes, I am a girl. Yes, I know how to code. No, I don’t always look like the stereotypical nerd girl…Don’t label me. Don’t confine me into one category. A programmer can be anyone.
