WhiteHat Jr is the web’s leading live, one-on-one platform for teaching computer coding and math. Recently, the company’s team announced an all-new partnership with the Indian non-governmental organization Child Rights and You.
Child Rights and You is committed to working toward ensuring happier childhoods for all children. The organization will partner with WhiteHat Jr, engaging with and inspiring the platform’s students to motivate them to participate in social causes.
Students will be invited by Child Rights and You to create mobile applications designed to benefit causes centered around social impact. These students will then be certified by the organization for their efforts. It’s hoped that these will result in a tremendous variety of real-world apps envisioned to help society create a better tomorrow.
“We receive hundreds of ideas every month from students who want to develop mobile applications that support the underprivileged or help contribute to society,” explains a WhiteHat Jr representative. “This non-for-profit worldview for kids is particularly inspiring, and we’re delighted to partner with Child Rights and You to reinforce it,” they continued.
At inception, Whitehat Jr reviewed the landscape of the educational technology space and was launched to transform the world’s children into creators. Students learn logic, structure, sequence, algorithmic thinking, and more through its celebrated and ever-growing curriculum. The students are then prompted to use their new skills by creating everything from animations to applications.

Chief among Child Rights and You’s goals is ensuring that today’s kids are more attuned and empathetic toward others. With that in mind, they’re positioned to help find solutions for a better tomorrow.
