LaunchCode’s mission is to build a skilled workforce by creating pathways for driven people seeking careers in technology.

Based in St. Louis, LaunchCode has been educating & placing people into paid tech apprenticeships at no cost to them for more than six years. We know that access to education levels the playing field for everyone with passion, drive and aptitude, builds the community’s vital tech workforce, and launches those without traditional credentials into stable tech careers with family-supporting wages. Our Apprenticeship Program leads to tech roles with an average starting salary of $59,000.

LaunchCode focuses on serving those who are underrepresented in technology by intentionally forming course cohorts that reflect the communities we serve. In St. Louis in 2020, 70% of our students identify as women or gender non-conforming, 55% are People of Color, 23% of our students are Black, and over 60% of our students report earning $30,000 or less upon entering LaunchCode.

While LaunchCode removes the barrier of tuition by providing all education programs free of charge, our students often encounter hurdles that – without assistance – prevent them from completing training. At times, LaunchCoders with the drive to persist in class and improve their family’s economic future face short term realities that derail their studies: the need to seek an extra job to cover utility bills or a car repair, the struggle to afford the childcare required to be able to complete challenging course assignments.

Your contribution to the HenRose Cares LaunchCode Student Fund will provide a St. Louis LaunchCoder with targeted assistance which allows them to continue training toward a career in tech.

The economic realities of 2020 make LaunchCode’s work – providing equitable access to the opportunity of stable, high-wage tech careers – more critical than ever for folks in St. Louis striving toward a better future for their families. Thank you for your support.
