Launched in 2019, Coding Her Future engages girls in immersive computer science and engineering camps, working to bridge the gender gap in STEM. Women make up more than 50% of the U.S. population, but only 12% of computer science undergraduates are female. Girls who have access to STEM camps or programs are four times as likely to major in computer science and engineering in college. To date, 50,000 girls have graduated from iD Tech programs. Under this initiative, iD Tech matches partnership donations to provide life-changing scholarships. Our goal is to inspire girls in tech, cultivating the future women of STEM.
iD Tech is dedicated to moving the needle in STEM education.
Through our social impact initiatives, we provide life-changing STEM experiences that embolden underrepresented students to shape the future.

Coding Her Future
Tuition Assistance Program
Since its inception, our Tuition Assistance Program has provided more than 2,000 scholarships for underrepresented students to attend iD Tech programs. Through individual applications, nonprofit partners and schools, iD Tech has introduced students throughout the country to STEM, sparking their curiosity in tech. Every child deserves access to quality tech education, regardless of socioeconomic background. Our goal is to help bridge the digital divide.
Over the past few years, iD Tech has sought out opportunities to give back to underserved populations with tech education programs during the school year. For National Computer Science week in 2017, iD Tech held outreach programs in LA, Chicago and New York, collectively reaching over 300 students, teaching students coding through their lessons with LittleBits. This past season, iD Tech partnered with Education Equals Opportunity Too to inspire 30 at-risk middle school students in Long Beach by teaching entrepreneurial concepts tied to learning Mobile Game Development, YouTube Video Production and 3D Printing & Prototyping.
We believe in giving back and sharing cutting-edge tech with our communities. In 2019, we donated nearly $250,000 worth of equipment to the Discovery Museum, Washoe County School District, and Mount Rose School, including LEGO robotics kits, 3D printers, and STEM-based board games. Our goal is to ignite a passion in the future leaders of STEM with cutting-edge technology.
Diversity and inclusion
Diversity, inclusion, and collaboration are fundamental to who we are, how we create the best teams, and how we will accelerate change in the digital age. iD Tech’s goal is to cultivate an atmosphere that’s encouraging of unique perspectives and values diversity, both in our office culture and at camp. Our intention is to foster a community with more opportunities for advancement, contribution, and inspiration from all our identities within iD Tech. Our goal is for our staff and students to belong, to feel safe bringing their whole, authentic selves to work and camp each day, every day.
Employee community engagement
Making an impact in the community is an integral part of our company culture. Every year, our employees dedicate hundreds of hours to give back. We collaborate with a variety of nonprofit organizations to make a meaningful difference. Projects range from writing letters to soldiers, volunteering at creek clean-ups, contributing at food banks, and helping provide baby food for low-income, single mothers. Our goal is to empower employees to maximize volunteer hours and connect authentically with our community.
