Description

WE'RE ON A MISSION TO CLOSE THE GENDER GAP IN TECH.

Girls Who Code is on a mission to close the gender gap in technology and to change the image of what a programmer looks like and does. We're reaching girls around the world and are on track to close the gender gap in new entry-level tech jobs by 2030.

Clubs are free after-school programs for 3rd-5th and 6th-12th grade girls to join our sisterhood of supportive peers and role models using computer science to change the world.

SISTERHOOD
Join a safe and supportive environment of peers and role models where girls learn to see themselves as computer scientists.
CODE
Learn the concepts of loops, variables, conditionals, and functions that form the basis of all programming languages.
IMPACT
Work in teams to complete a computer science impact project that solves a real-world problem in your community.
