JA Community Coders is a single session that enables early elementary school students to see the importance of digital skills and jobs in the community. This STEM-focused session also allows students to explore and apply the basics of computer programming by participating in a hands-on coding activity. This session was developed as part of the redeveloped JA Our Community® Blended program scheduled to be released in February 2022.

• Can be delivered as a stand-alone learning experience or as a supplement to JA Our Community®, JA Our Families®, or JA Our City®.
• Introduces STEM and digital skills through a hands-on coding activity.
• Easily adapts for different options based on the learning environment for implementation, student access to technology, and students’ prior experience with technology.

JA Learning Experiences support national and state standards in reading, mathematics, social studies, and work and career readiness. See below for more information on alignment with national and state standards.
