Apps for Good
Apps for Good is an award-winning charity that is powering young people to change their world with technology. Since our launch in 2010, we’ve reached over 170,000 students in more than 1,500 schools, helping young people learn to turn bright ideas into real technology products.
Apps for Good is supported by over a thousand technology and business professionals who serve as expert volunteers for our students, as well as world-class tech industry partners and foundations/trusts including the National Lottery Community Fund, Comic Relief, LEGO, Spotify, BNY Mellon and Vodafone.
We have a focus on reaching young people in challenging circumstances and empowering more girls in technology. In 2018/19, 52% of our students were female and 68% of schools reached were in challenging circumstances.
With offices based in Old Street, Central London, we are a charity with a start-up mindset. We are a close-knit, highly ambitious and energetic team who all believe strongly in our mission and values.
