G{Code} Full Stack

Empowering communities

The G{Code} House was established in 2017 with the mission of bridging the technology opportunity disparity among women and non-binary individuals of color in Greater Boston. Since our inception, we have evolved into a leading force in the tech industry, championing diversity and inclusion and emphasizing equity and social justice. Our goal is to equip our fellows with the essential digital skills they need.

Our G{Code} Full Stack project represents an ambitious effort to intertwine tech education with affordable housing, thereby transforming lives and communities. With this initiative, we aim to renovate 43 Hutchings Street in Roxbury into a state-of-the-art tech center that combines training with housing for our fellows.

The G{Code} House will provide a 4,000 square-foot space that empowers young women and non-binary people of color who aspire to tech careers. By addressing their basic needs, we can facilitate a conducive environment for up to 14 individuals to hone their technical skills, build professional networks, secure internships, and transition into the workforce. Our approach leverages the cohort model, fostering peer learning and mentorship.

Designed to function like a ‘full stack’ website, our tech center will provide high-quality training while simultaneously addressing the complex challenges of affordable housing. Furthermore, it will be accessible to the Dorchester community, broadening our reach and impact.

The Main House

14 low-income women and non binary people of color will be able to live in the 4000+ sq ft Main House for up to two years while pursuing technical training, working as interns or apprentices, and/or transitioning into full time technical roles. Through mentorship, personal and professional development workshops, and other wraparound supports, cohort members will be amply prepared for their new careers in tech. All cohort members will contribute below-market rents while living in the Main House, accumulating a portion of their rents into Individual Development Accounts.
