Get the skills and confidence you need for a career with technology! This free 10-week after-school program is designed for girls with a wide range of computer science skills. In the Club, girls engage in fun and simple online coding tutorials, build community through interactive activities, learn about inspiring role models in tech, and work together to design solutions to real-world problems facing their communities.  

Presented in partnership with Girls Who Code, a non-profit organization dedicated to closing the gender gap in technology by teaching computer science, bravery, and sisterhood.  

The Girls Who Code curricula are particularly designed and intended to serve those who identify as female, regardless of gender assignment at birth or legal recognition, between the ages of 13 and 18. For more information on Girls Who Code eligibility, please see their website.
