Using Girl Power to Inspire the Next Generation of Female Coders!
WHAT'S TO LOVE
There is an extreme shortage of female coders. Girls Who Code is after school program that teaches girls to code, exposes them to mentors in the field and promotes a "girl power" philosophy that gives girls the skills and confidence needed to go farther in computer science and technology fields. Girls Who Code hosts intensive summer sessions and year long coding clubs across the US. The clubs are part instruction and part time to let girls develop their own apps, websites and games using what they have learned. There is a strong sense of community and support, so girls gain lots of confidence in this setting. Girl Coders Activate!
Girls Who Code is now in 25 states. It's easy to see if there is a club in your area through the site, just click on "Find a Club". And if you are computer science expert, they are always looking for mentors to start new clubs.
