Young Rewired State (or YRS) is a worldwide community of digital makers and technically gifted people aged 18 and under. It brings together young coders, developers, designers and those with other technical skills to build projects and support each other. The Guardian described its members as “the young people who build the technologies of our future”.

As well as meeting like-minded peers, Young Rewired State members can meet expert mentors at free events around the world, like the Festival of Code, a national hackathon. The members work in teams and use freely available open data to build apps, websites and algorithms, solving real world problems.
