Coding it Forward builds civic tech talent pipeline, with support from the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative
“When it’s implemented well, technology can be an amazing equalizer, allowing access to goods and services for people who previously would have been at huge disadvantage for getting them.”
— Loren Hinkson, Civic Digital Fellow, Coding it Forward
Government services, like food assistance, health care, and legal aid, help millions of people lead healthy, productive lives. What can we do to make accessing these services easier and more user-friendly?
Coding it Forward is dedicated to answering that question, and this summer, we helped support their fellowship program. Coding It Forward’s mission is to empower the next generation of digital leaders to effect social change. They bring students from around the country, like Loren Hinkson, to Washington, D.C., to develop technology products that help make government services work better for people.
