C.O.D.E. Initiative

In partnership with the C.O.D.E. Initiative, BC Tech is excited to provide funding for neurodivergent students to explore the world of technology and coding.

The C.O.D.E. Initiative is a registered non-profit organization with a mission to provide accessible and inclusive coding and STEM opportunities to neurodiverse individuals.

Traditional education systems often cannot provide the personalized support that neurodiverse individuals require, and are tailored only to the success of neurotypical individuals.  Additionally, the cost of learning services for neurodiverse learners is high, while availability is low, putting these valuable services out-of-reach for many who could benefit from them.

C.O.D.E. offers neurodiverse students a learning structure of combined 1-on-1 tutoring & group-work, promoting dynamic play and social resilience that will help them learn and grow professionally and interpersonally.   The program is mutually beneficial to the students and the tech sector as a whole.  Part of C.O.D.E.’s mission is to increase diversity in the tech sector through the inclusion and celebration of neurodiverse voices.

Specialized curriculum design combined with a strong network of teachers result in a learning environment tailored to the needs and strengths of differently-abled youth.
