A Code4Life participant presents her Module One final project

Welcome to Code4Life!! Step One in participating in the program is completing the Sign-in form below. Follow the instructions on the form.

 

As you probably know by now, Code4Life is an after-school program you can take part in that will teach you the basics of how to program a computer. Right away it will be fun and interesting, even exciting, but down the road it can lead to many things.

If you're good at math, you know that $79,000 is a lot of money. It's also the average starting salary for a computer programmer in the Washington, DC region.

Sharpen your pencil and calculate $79,000 per year with a 3% raise every year over a 40 year career. You should come up with over $7 million in lifetime earnings. The DC region will be creating hundreds of thousands of computer programming jobs over the course of your lifetime. As you move from middle-school to high school and beyond, Code4Life will help prepare you for a career as a computer programmer.

If your school doesn't offer the Code4Life program, send us an email at schools@egdcfoundation.org, and tell us what school you attend. You also might want to tell your teachers and principal you'd like to take part in the program.

DIGITAL BADGES

Code4Life participates in the District of Learning's digital badging program. After the successful completion of a module of our curriculum, you'll receive a digital badge. As you move along thru the program, you'll receive additional badges.

If you join the program in 6th grade and stay through our eventual post-secondary training program, you'll acquire a minimum of fifteen badges. These badges will then serve as a form of credentialing system and you can use them when seeking employment or college admission.

  This is an example of the digital badge a student receives for the successful completion of a module of Code4Life.
