There are plenty of options for kids to code, Breakout Mentors is the most personalized and designed for long-term growth. I’m glad you found us!
Many skills are necessary to code effectively – everything from planning ahead to troubleshooting when things go wrong. Coding isn’t just knowing individual concepts, it’s putting them together to achieve a result. This is very difficult for adults – kids require 1-on-1 attention to advance and continue to have fun.
Breakout Mentors is centered around our talented mentors – Computer Science students at Stanford and UC Berkeley (also USF and SCU upon request). Each kid is paired with an exciting mentor for weekly 90 minute sessions – whether in person at the college, over video conference, or even in-home. They build a rapport together over months or years. The mentor provides the right balance of structured curriculum and encouragement of student creativity through fun projects.
