Member information

Young Rewired State is a worldwide community of digital makers aged 18 and under. We introduce them to like-minded peers, and expert mentors, at free events around the world, where they use freely available open data to build apps, websites and algorithms to solve real world challenges.

Our aims are to:
- Find and foster a community of young coders and digital makers
- Get them 'civic hacking' together: using their skills, to improve their communities
- Promote peer to peer learning
- Provide a fun, inclusive and supportive environment
- Equip these young people with the skills to become the tech stars of tomorrow

Every single economy in the world faces the threat of a digital skills shortage, such is the rate of growth in digital industries. Whilst there are many opportunities for young people to sample coding, or learn the basics, there is very little out there for those who wish to develop their skills to an advanced level. School curriculums just can't keep pace. That's where Young Rewired State come in – we provide that bridge between starting out and pursuing a future in technology
