Kids Next Code
Kids Next Code program began January 2016
Organization is geared towards increasing the exposure kids in underserved communities have to technology education courses such as coding, app design, and game design.
Since 2016, we've taught STEM related courses such as coding, game design, engineering, and robotics to over 1,000 students (ages 5-18) nationwide!
In 2019, the Kids Next Code program expanded to New York to bring coding programs to Queens, New York and New Rochelle, New York.
"Prior to entering the Reeve's Coding Program my kids ages 12,9 and 8 had never had any coding experience. Reeves's Coding Program not only introduced my kids to coding in a fun and engaging way, it also excited them and peeked there interest. During my kids private session I was able to learn and pick up on some basic coding skills while I watch my kids build their first website. Needless to say I would definitely recommend Reeve's Coding Program for anyone, any age, looking to learn coding from a energetic, knowledgeable and engaging teacher "
