The Code Mobile is an initiative of Canada Learning Code, a not-for-profit organization that promotes diversity in the tech industry and provides technical education for youth, teachers, and genders underrepresented in tech. They're one of 13 vans across the country, travelling across our regions to give youth an introduction to coding. The mission of Code Mobile is to bring technical education to youth in all communities across Canada with zero financial or logistical barriers.
