Post-Secondary Representation

We have student members, typically in Computer Science and Engineering programs, from the following post-secondary institutions in Calgary.

For Students

Calling all programmers, engineers and tinkerers!
Do you want to excel your programming knowledge, learn new software skills, and gain amazing experiences to put on your resume while helping your community and contributing to social change?

Code The Change is a student driven community initiative where computer science and engineering students use their skills for social change. We have worked alongside non-profit organizations for the last five years. Founded at Stanford University, Code The Change has spread to campuses across the US and Canada.


For Causes

  • Code The Change is a student-led initiative where students in technology-focused programs volunteer their time to work on projects for causes as a way to grow their skills, gain experience, attain mentorship, and give back to the community.

    We seek to partner with causes that have projects on the go that need additional programming and software development support. We work on a wide range of projects, from developing web/phone apps, to RESTful web services to data collection or aggregation tools. We will work with you to find the right tool for the job. We prefer projects that are already underway with a good vision, but require a lot more technical work to move it along.

    If you have a potential project, please complete a cause project submission


For Industry Mentors

Have you spent a considerable amount of time in the industry and would like to give back to the community?

Code The Change will engage students in post secondary schools throughout Calgary to assist causes in unlocking them to their full potential, while ensuring the students' skillsets are getting developed and made more robust.
