GeekPack® exists to empower women & girls to change their lives for the better through the power of code, community & confidence. We teach valuable technological & business building skills, provide a supportive and encouraging community, and deliver the confidence to believe that ANY dream is possible to achieve.
GeekPack® Core Values
Touch the world with purpose, every day making something better than when we found it. We see every day as a whiteboard on which to draw the dreams of our community until we make them real together.
ANYONE can learn to code with the right instruction & community. We demolish the status quo by opening the door so often closed to women and girls through inexhaustible empathy and an unwavering, supportive community.
Create wildly successful students. We revel in the joy we see when our students grow in character and confidence through learning to code. We share in their happiness, support their growth, and celebrate each other’s wins.
Go above and beyond. From providing support & encouragement in our community, to serving our customers, or helping our colleagues, our shared love for our Mission empowers us to go beyond what we thought was our “best” in service to our cause.
Compassion for Community. We know we are nothing without our community and we show it by the deep empathy, respect, and patience we give in every interaction. The positive environment we build has an individual focus but with a family feel, cultivated by listening longer, harder, and deeper so that everyone feels heard.
Five years from now, GeekPack® will be serving over 100,000 women and girls who are learning to code in our supportive community while dramatically building their confidence. We will be THE industry standard for empowering female coders around the world.

Black Girls CODE is devoted to showing the world that black girls can code, and do so much more. By reaching out to the community through workshops and after school programs, Black Girls CODE introduces computer coding lessons to young girls from underrepresented communities in programming languages such as Scratch or Ruby on Rails.

By promoting classes and programs we hope to grow the number of women of color working in technology and give underprivileged girls a chance to become the masters of their technological worlds.
Black Girls CODE's ultimate goal is to provide African-American youth with the skills to occupy some of the 1.4 million computing job openings expected to be available in the U.S. by 2020, and to train 1 million girls by 2040.
