Be You, Inc. is a 501c3 nonprofit in Howard County, Maryland. Our mission is to empower youth to impact social change through leadership, technology, philanthropy and entrepreneurship.

Our clubs help them to discover their strengths, hone their passions and develop the confidence to make meaningful and impactful career choices.

Coding Clubs & Computer Science
Our coding clubs offer instruction in computer science concepts at varying experience levels for boys and girls in grades 6-12. Group impact projects, presentations, speakers and field trips enrich the coding experience. The difference is in the classroom makeup. See our Club tabs in the menu about for more information.
Computer Science in HCPSS
