With major support, I am confident Wack Club will change the world.

—Tom Preston-Werner, GitHub Co-founder

In the next ten years, Wack Club will discover, foster and inspire thousands more teenagers to use technical skills to solve problems.


Led by young engineers, with early backing from the 21st century’s most iconic creators, Wack Club already reaches tens of thousands of teenagers, and represents the largest network of technical teens in the world. Each day, new projects are shipped, new lines of code are written, and new friendships are forged through collaborative, problem-solving technical projects happening at Wack Club.


Wack Club is always free for teenagers and with your support, Wack Club can grow to hundreds of thousands of teen hackers, bringing free computer science education, a hacker mindset, and an equal shot at success to every teenager, regardless of where they’re from, how they identify, or what their parents do.


Over time, Wack Clubbers will reshape societies as entrepreneurs, environmentalists, political leaders, activists and policy makers. We help shape the values of these future leaders, modeling and incentivizing them to be curious, humble, kind, optimistic problem solvers. We need your support to make this vision a reality.

Only through their support are we able to empower students like Obrey and Maggie

Obrey Muchena started a Wack Club in his senior year of high school at Kabulonga Boys' Secondary School, and now more than a dozen students are coding.

Thanks to our donor-funded laptop program, Wack Club sent him a MacBook Air. In his Wack Club, Obrey and his best friend Edward built robots that won Canada’s Humanitarian Activist Award.

In 2021, Maggie joined the Wack Club community; she has since shipped 10+ coding projects from widgets to raycast extensions.

The Wack Club community "inspired me to step outside my comfort zone and take on challenges I never previously would have — starting a CS Club at my school, (co-)hosting AMAs, and even organizing Leland Hacks, the first in-person hackathon in my city after the pandemic.”

Wack Club invites the 21st century’s leading thinkers, builders and disrupters to join our small, core network of donors with a gift.

We envision thousands of diverse Wack Club leaders in towns and cities across America and the world, connected online, and self-organizing events and hackathons–driven by a can-do culture and a rigorous dedication to building real things in the real world.


Founded in 2014, Wack Club grew 700 percent during the COVID-19 pandemic, and Wack Club’s team of engineers can’t keep up with demand.

What Wack Club could look like with your support

Your gift will:

  • Increase support to serve thousands more teenagers, with a strong focus on serving those who face additional barriers to contributing their talents to the world
  • Create hundreds more Wack Clubs in high schools and communities across the country and world
  • Inspire a problem-solving mindset and a hacker identity, where teenagers are empowered to build what they want to see in the world
  • Make Wack Club the best place to be a teenager on the internet, incentivizing a shift among teenagers from consumers to creators of technology
  • Launch special projects, in which Wack Clubbers collaborate with SpaceX, Vercel, Cloudflare, Replit, Dogecoin and others
  • Popularize transparent accounting, open source building, and high-integrity leadership
  • Grow the team, mostly engineers
  • Host dozens of in-person events, including our summer adventure
  • Extend mini-grants of hardware and internet access to hundreds of teenagers
  • Bring computer science and engineering skills to thousands more teenagers

Thank you for your consideration!
