Unlock your leadership potential

CodeYourFuture is a grassroots community that trains people facing economic and social challenges to get a job in tech.

Passionate, talented and engaged volunteers like you drive the mission. We created a program for future leaders to guide our regions. Leaders create the foundation for a movement serving communities worldwide.

A crucial part of CodeYourFuture's community-building project is supporting individuals to become compassionate future leaders. We offer a path for those looking to develop their leadership skills and gain real-life experience. A CYF leader builds and guides empowered local teams to organise and deliver classes, community-building activities and mentorship programmes.

Leaders organise one of the CYF volunteer teams for one cohort. 

Why join the Leadership Program?

  • Join a project that reduces the diversity gap in the tech industry.
  • Develop your leadership skills and gain real-life experience.
  • Network with and learn from people from different cultures, backgrounds, ways of thinking and working.
