Modern, technical education for the heartland.

Main Street Codes is a coding school and coworking space located in Galesburg, Illinois. Our goal is to create a critical mass of technical talent that can work remotely, create companies, and drive innovation in the region for decades to come. We connect students to external learning resources, like Kenzie Academy and Treehouse, and provide support, mentorship, and tutoring as they progress along this journey. Once students meet a minimum level of proficiency, we source and manage paid software development projects to give them a chance to develop their skills and build a portfolio for future employment.

Learning Cohorts

Whether you're looking for a new career or just new skills, we help connect you to learning resources for coding skills that are actually in-demand. We help students, teachers, journalists, administrators, entrepreneurs, and everyone inbetween do their job more efficiently. Do you have a business or app idea that you'd love to build?
