Be You empowers youth to impact social change through technology and innovation. We engage middle & high school students in project-based learning experiences through our coding clubs, workshops and collaborative community impact projects. Our clubs encourage students to discover their strengths, passions and the confidence to make meaningful and impactful career choices.

Our coding clubs offer instruction in computer science concepts at varying experience levels for all students in grades 6-12. We have gender specific clubs for girls and coed clubs which are inclusive of everyone. Each club has presentations, speakers and a culminating impact project to enrich the coding experience.
