Operation Code is leading the way to expand opportunities for military veterans and their families. We aim to help veterans learn new skills and build their careers in the fast-growing technology sector. Our team’s mission - led by veterans and other dedicated, passionate volunteers - is to help open doors for our diverse member base through unique program offerings, such as our Software Mentor Program, conference scholarships, and employment services. All of this is made possible by individual donations and corporate partnerships.

Leadership

As leaders, we are responsible for what we do or fail to do. We hold ourselves accountable for achieving results that accomplish the mission. We listen to our community to ensure we are working towards the vision. We will humbly remember that their service was of the highest order and that Operation Code works for them.

Agility

We maintain an attitude of continuous improvement and we constantly look for new and better ways to serve our community - we owe them nothing less. When our operating environment changes, and new challenges emerge, we adjust our approach accordingly.

Clarity

By being clear and transparent in everything Operation Code does, our community can trust that we will act with integrity with the resources we are given. In communicating, we are considerate of the sender and the receiver.
