Help Your Community?
We could use your talents.

We are a Code for America Brigade, which means we’re civic-minded volunteers of techies, creatives, business people and other civic-stakeholders that contribute our talents toward improving the way our local governments and community organizations work.

See what kind of things brigades do, and watch the TED talk given by Jennifer Pahlka, Founder of Code for America.
