Girls Who Code, the national non-profit dedicated to closing the gender gap in technology is seeking partners to host its Clubs programs. Computing skills are the most sought-after in the US job market, with demand growing 3X the national average. Computing is where the jobs are — and where they will be in the future — but girls across the US are being left behind. Today, less than a quarter of computing jobs are held by women, and that number is declining. You can help reverse the decline! Girls Who Code Clubs inspire, educate, and equip our girls for tomorrow’s computing jobs. Applications for 2017-2018 are open now.
About the Clubs
Clubs are FREE after-school programs for 6-12th grade girls to use computer science to impact their community and join our sisterhood of supportive peers and role models. They can be hosted in schools, universities, libraries, community centers, faith-based organizations, or nonprofits. Clubs are led by Facilitators, who can be teachers, computer scientists, librarians, parents, or volunteers from any background or field. Many Facilitators have NO technical experience and learn to code alongside their Club members.
Girls Who Code hosts regular webinars about our Clubs program for you to join at whichever time is most convenient for you. You can sign up here for one of our upcoming webinars.
Please contact Emily Ong, Community Partner Manager at Girls Who Code to explore a partnership to launch Clubs in your community.
