PopSchools.org is a collective community effort. We are currently building the PopSchools community primarily through our newsletter, GitHub, and here on open collective. Our website is under construction but you can expect to find out more about us, what we do, and who has supported us there soon.

PopSchools.org is meant to create access to a safe and inclusive community, mutual aid, and paying work opportunities through apprenticeships to early-career software developers. We also aim to create openings at the beginning of the tech talent pipeline by creating programs that reach and teach people who have little or no experience in tech or software development.
