What We Stand For
GCL was founded in 2015 to make emerging technology education accessible to all students, regardless of gender, race, or socioeconomic status. We support students through hands-on learning and connecting educators to resources, to bridge the education gap at its root for generations to come. Our goal is to enact long-term change.
We bring our innovative AI summits and learn-to-teach programs to HBCUs, low-income centers, and Latinx communities. Everyone deserves a chance at a high-quality STEM education, and not only do we provide that to students identifying with minority groups in technology, but we guide them to become teachers, leaders, and changemakers on their own.
The Future Of Tech For The Future Of Tech
While we support students in learning the fundamentals, our focus is identifying emerging areas of computer science and technology to teach in a simple, accessible way and starting conversations about to bring diverse perspectives and fair and equitable development to technology.
Learning By Doing
Project-based learning is at the core of our mission in an effort to focus on equiping the next generation with a strong theoretical foundation supplemented with impactful mini-projects to explore.
Supporting The Technology Pipeline
Ultimately, we partner with a host of companies to ensure that there is a strong, diverse, and knowledgeable future workforce educated and equipped to make an impact
