Hack Club (501(c)(3) nonprofit) is a community of teenagers around the world who are learning technology by building things they care about and sharing with other people. Hack Club is where teenage coders make friends, build together, and get inspiration. We’re here to try and create the most incredible learning community, tools, and services to support them to go far technically, and also grow personally with positive values.

We do this by creating open-source projects which serve the community like a transparent “bank” for nonprofits, a game console you can only get by building a game for it, a guide to assembly language, a cross-country hackathon on a train. Hack Club supports and grows our community by facilitating wholesome social spaces online and in-person.

Hack Club is a shared interest, centered around a shared activity, with a shared ethic. We serve about 20,000 teenagers every year.

  • Conceive, develop, and deliver inspiring open source projects which engage teenagers around the world in their creation and use, both through writing code directly and through leading teams of teenage Hack Clubbers.
