About Us

Code for Trenton is part of the network of civic hackers linked to Code for America. We believe that by combining technology and motivated citizens, there is a great opportunity for government and cities overall to become dynamic, highly-effective environments for the future.

By building open source technology and design solutions created for the people and by the people, we have the power to make Trenton and the entire region ever-more connected, safe, informed, and thriving. We are focused not only on empowering the city's tech savvy residents but teaching the technologists of tomorrow.

Whether you are still in grade school, college, or someone of any age eager to start making a difference with tech, we have something for you. Join us in making Trenton an even better place.
