About Us

OUR STORY

Quincy Coders is a youth-led coding club founded in 2022 as a small group of families gathering at the local library looking to help their children connect with others of similar interests. By having kids coding and teaching each other, they realized that there was an unmet need to develop and expand peer learning, whereby the club quickly outgrew this space. While finding adequate location(s) to learn and collaborate has been the biggest challenge for well over a year, Quincy Coders now operates sessions primarily around Quincy, along with Braintree and Weymouth. With the help of dedicated parents and youth leaders, we continue our outreach to neighboring towns and the greater south shore community.

      OUR VISION

We are motivated and dedicated to aspire youth leadership and foster future innovators in our community. We believe that it is through peer learning and engagement that we can cultivate growth and development, empower them to learn, teach, think creatively, collaborate, manage and lead. By encouraging our youth to give back to the community, this strengthens our collective ties.
