Welcome to the 21st Century Renaissance!

Welcome to the Renaissance 21 website! Renaissance 21 is a 501(c)(3) that provides education, training, and resources to social entrepreneurs to help turn their altruistic ideas into successful nonprofit programs. Programs are then either offered independently or by the Renaissance 21 organization.

We are proud to say we are in the launch phase of our first program offering, Star Tech Global Academy (STGA), which provides STEM education to at-risk and underrepresented youth. We are also developing two other programs, Business League of America and My Family Legacy. More information will be available via the individual program pages above!

The Coder’s Club
Renaissance 21 is proud to announce that we are in the second round of fundraising for the launch of a pilot run of The Coder’s Club, an offering from our Star Tech Global Academy (STGA) program.
The pilot of The Coder’s Club is conducted in partnership with Peace for the Streets by Kids from the Streets (PSKS), a nonprofit that provides services and support for Seattle area homeless and street-involved youth and young adults. The Coder’s Club provides the diverse, at-risk youth at PSKS (ages 13-19, 57% minority, 54% male) with cutting edge STEM curriculum that teaches the basics of computer programming for desktop and mobile website applications. Applications are developed for local small businesses to solve their real world problems, with a special emphasis on Women and Minority Business Enterprises (WMBEs).
In sum, The Coder’s Club tackles the STEM achievement gap while helping small WMBE’s simultaneously. All current fundraising is being directed toward this initiative. If you’d like to help, please hit the “Donate” button on the top of the page or send us an email for volunteer opportunities. Thanks so much!


Star Tech Global Academy can provide STEM education to at-risk and underrepresented youth anywhere via an innovative mobile supply system.
