Our Community
Our clubhouse & online community are designed to support anyone who wants to learn or make something cool. We'd love for you to join us.
Access our community from anywhere & know you always have good people in your corner.

Our thriving online community spans the globe and is accessible anywhere, any time. Chat with alumni, share book recommendations, access exclusive job opportunities, or hang out at happy hour. The possibilities are endless when you're part of the Forge family.

We also have a clubhouse at #9 Elliewood Avenue in Charlottesville, Virginia. Known as "number nine" this co-working space doubles as a home for late-night whiteboarding sessions, idea jams with friends, and even pregames and parties.

How to Become a Member
Once you complete your first Forge program, you're granted membership to our community. These are the two programs we offer to new students and are available in-person and online:

  1. Take a skills course and level up your digital skills. This is the most popular way students join.
  2. Join Launch, our summer training + internship program, and get paid to learn.
Membership Perks
discounted Skills Courses (25% off) and early enrollment
access to our clubhouse, coworking spaces, and online community
exclusive professional development workshops + member only social events
access to our 1,500+ member alumni network
project support (mentorship + financial support)
…and a whole host of other perks.
After your first semester, dues are $50 each semester. That $50 keeps your membership at Forge active, and includes all the perks above.

We also offer reduced payment options on a needs-basis, no questions asked. Contact us at for more information.
