C4Q creates pathways out of poverty. We believe that people from every community and background—across ethnicity, gender, and socio-economic background—should have the opportunity to learn to code, gain jobs in tech, and create companies of the future. We teach adults who are living in poverty and who do not have college degrees to code, help them gain software engineering jobs in tech, and support them in launching their careers and becoming entrepreneurs.
Our students represent the potential of our community and come from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences. We are preparing software developers for tomorrow’s technology careers. Software is vital to industries as varied as Digital Manufacturing to Wearable Fashion. C4Q Labs aims to ensure inclusivity in these emergent sectors by providing access to relevant experts, education, and equipment. We are equipping our fellows and alumni with the skills and relationships they will need for the tech jobs of the future.
