In the technology filled world of today, the ability to program becomes increasingly important - both in terms of future careers, where many jobs will be replaced by technology, as well as in terms of personal fulfillment. In short, coding is the language of tomorrow. However, the interest in programming needs to be honed early, but the resources aren't always available.

Our mission at Coders4Tomorrow is to provide these resources for bright young minds in the Grand Rapids area regardless of historical, social, or economic background.

What we do

We have programs and courses for students at no cost to the families. Below are some of the things we do as Coders4Tomorrow.

Curriculum Development

We believe that a lot of resources out there are disorganized and hard to follow, so we took the initiative to develop our own curriculum to facilitate better learning.


Through programs and courses, we teach the students the basics of computer science, in order to provide a foundation that students can build upon to reach new heights.

Who we are

Founded in 2019, the Coders4Tomorrow team consists of students and alumni from Forest Hills. We work in collaboration with various branches of Kent District Library to provide entertaining, enriching content intended to inform, encourage, and excite students in the world of programming.

What is Scratch?

Scratch is a block based coding program created by MIT to make code more accessible to young audiences. It maintains a simple structure while allowing for understanding of core programming concepts.

Here is an example program written in Scratch that we cover in our Intro to Scratch course, along with several other projects.
