Inclusion is a non-profit organization, empowering underserved communities through coding.

Inclusion is a non-profit dedicated to ending the digital divide. We provide free coding and technology classes for people in diverse communities so they can obtain 21st century employment. Our mission falls right in line with the UN's sustainable goal of providing quality education. We're working towards creating an inclusive and diverse workforce in all fields of technology. We believe that with quality education, underrepresented groups can bring a variety of talents, skills, and experiences to the information economy.

We recruit deeply in the communities we serve and achieved scale. It costs us 93% less than the industry average to educate one student. A 100% of our students are minorities, 70% are immigrants, and over 50% of our students are women of color. Our students now work at some of the top companies across industries. We've recently launched classes to train refugees and up-skill them for jobs in the information economy. Here are our measurements and metrics: Skills - We've offered training in 10+ skills (HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Blockchain, Firebase, Resumes, Project Management, Design Thinking). Jobs - 83% of our students are back in the workforce and have tripped their salaries. Scale - We've reduced costs and increase access to our program , it costs 93% less to educate our students. Classes - We're launching our online platform in May with over 3000 students from across the world on our waiting list.

Inclusion not only teaches the power of the web, we live it. Our team has a combined 35 years of experience in technology, finance, and non-profits. Together with the leadership of our founder Saeed Jabbar, an immigrant and native of Queens, NY, we've built Inclusion into a world class organization that has has earned the support of major industry leaders like Microsoft, WeWork, eBay, Twilio, and New York Venture Partners. Wether its providing funding, classroom space, instructors, or mentors, Inclusion is the organization of choice for our partners.
