What is Code-to-Care?


Code-to-Care is an innovative program that seamlessly merges a STEAM curriculum, encompassing Computational Thinking, Mobile app development, Design Thinking, and creative use of media technology, with a community mentoring initiative. Its primary objective is to empower students by fostering emotional management, enhancing their social and emotional well-being, and facilitating community integration.

More in-depth explanation of Code-to-Care

Code-to-Care aims to address critical societal issues

  • The dire need for comprehensive mental health support and holistic well-being among young adolescents.

  • Secondary schools’ students are grappling with various social-emotional challenges, an issue of increasing concern.

  • Particular prominent among the growing population of Special Education Needs (SEN) students who face resource limitations, misconceptions, and exclusion within both educational institutions and the wider community.

  • The program adopts the Social Emotional Learning model, which promotes the development of students' soft skills, resilience, and mental well-being.

  • The program focuses on enhancing interpersonal and relational proficiencies, fostering emotional management, and cultivating a sense of inclusion and connection with the community,

  • Code-to-Care endeavors to empower students on multiple fronts.

Our approach


  • A program which allows students to collaborate with mentors who provide guidance, support, and valuable feedback.

  • Mentors play a pivotal role in assisting students in identifying community needs and developing impactful projects that address specific issues faced by individuals within the community.

  • Students work alongside their mentors to create meaningful solutions that positively impact the lives of those around them.

3 Courses Connected by a Holistic Development Program

What sets us apart is that we also offer a life development and mentorship program that runs concurrently with the three courses. All our mentors receive specialized and relevant training on how to engage with and support SEN youth.


The mentorship program we offer is one-on-one mentor to student. We also want to emphasize the flexibility of the program and the services we will provide you. All lessons and components can be offered as ECA suited to the particular schedule of your institution.


We believe social collaboration enhances STEM education by promoting real-world application, diverse perspectives, communication skills, engagement, innovation, and critical thinking. Our coding program includes a mentoring scheme that connects students with experienced mentors who provide real-world context, individualized feedback, and social and collaborative skill development.

To create a holistic approach to STEM education, we combine Positive Education and the Social Emotional Learning (SEL) model. Positive Education, based on the PERMA framework, develops cognitive, social, emotional, values, and perspective-based skills, fostering a positive mindset, meaningful relationships, emotional awareness, ethical values, diverse perspectives, and holistic skill development, enhancing their overall well-being and success in STEM disciplines.

Social interaction is a catalyst for personal growth. The SEL model is consistent with the PERMA framework, yet focuses more on social emotional development through interpersonal interactions. It has been shown to be appropriate for students with Special Education Needs (SEN). SEL cultivates self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision-making. 

Our mentoring scheme uses PERMA and SEL to enhance the following:


Cognitive + Social + Emotional + Values + Perspectives + Non-cognitive Skills


creativity, problem-solving skills,

Self-learning skills


Social awareness, conflict resolution, cooperative behaviour


Emotional awareness, emotional regulation and management, resilience


Ethical and civic values, generosity, caring for other and community


Optimism, gratitude, openness, inclusiveness

Non-cognitive Skills

Confidence,  Growth Mindset; Motivation, Grit


STEM with Community Mentoring

Position Emotions

Mentors foster positive emotions by creating a supportive environment where students feel valued and encouraged.


Social awareness, conflict resolution, cooperative behaviour

Positive Relationships

Emotional awareness, emotional regulation and management, resilience


Ethical and civic values, generosity, caring for other and community


Optimism, gratitude, openness, inclusiveness

Social and Emotional Learning


Our approach to holistic STEM education aims to be comprehensive and contextualized. So we include the person within the environment including the classroom, school, home and community:



We take program evaluation seriously and collaborate with researchers from The University of Hong Kong and The Hong Kong Polytechnic University. Our evaluation process includes quantitative surveys and qualitative interviews to provide a comprehensive view of program impact. 


Surveys use standardized scales to assess changes in students' thoughts, well-being, attitudes, and behaviors. Interviews with students, teachers, and mentors are semi-structured, adding depth to our understanding. Through rigorous evaluation, we continuously enhance our programs for meaningful impact.
