Support Us In Demonstrating to Young People the Potential of Technology to Do Good.

We have grown steadily and have demonstrated significant results. To make our Hack-a-thons available to all children we charge only a nominal attendance fee and rely heavily on volunteers as well as donations of materials, facilities and funds. We need additional financial and other resources to cover the costs of snacks, mailings, souvenir t-shirts, etc.


In addition, our goal is to reach ever more children by offering more Hack-a-thons and expanding our geographic reach beyond Connecticut. There are many ways you can help RHoK, Jr. to achieve our mission.

Get Involved

MENTORS

Mentors helping kids with coding

Older student and adults can serve as Mentors at a Hack-a-thon or contribute by helping out on site, researching and recruiting charities, or providing other valuable assistance in administering and publicizing our programs.

HOST AN EVENT

Provide a place for Hack-a-thons and funding for breakfast, t-shirts, etc., and be part of the community.

BECOME A SPONSOR

Swag

While providing financial support, Sponsors’ dedication to our mission and publicity for their organization is communicated by display of their logo on our promotional materials, at the Hack-a-thons, on the RHoK, Jr. Facebook page and other social media pages, and press releases. Past sponsors include Tom’s of Maine, Girl Scouts of Connecticut, and The Women and Girl’s Fund.

BECOME A PARTNER

Partners
Central CT State University Partners, Dr. Stanislav Kurkovsky, Chairman of the Computer Science department, and Dr. Zulma Toro.

Many hands are needed to run the Hack-a-thons and Partners are crucial for assisting in their implementation. They help in the following ways:

  • Help find student participants
  • Help find and recruit Mentors
  • Suggest nonprofits to engage for the program
  • Help on-site the day of the Hack-a-thon
  • Order or provide food as needed
