Hack Clubs typically meet for 1.5 hours each week in high schools, makerspaces, community centers, churches, and any other venue where teenagers can gather. Each club is unique but a typical meeting would look like:
A group of teens, many beginners, gather to start coding.The leader (that’s you!) presents for a few minutes, getting the group started building something new.2
Everyone gets hacking, individually. Not hacking bank accounts, being creative and making something awesome.3
To end, everyone demos their work.As a leader, you’re cultivating a community of makers. Each member showing off their work builds momentum & motivation.
~ Philosophy ~
Learning to code is uniquely like gaining a superpower—turning you from a consumer of technology into a creator. So it shouldn’t be taught like a class—it should be a creative, inclusive space. To foster this environment, every Hack Club is student-led & members make self-directed projects.Our philosophy →
