Girls Who Code

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. Girls Who Code, a national nonprofit working to close the gender gap in tech, seeks to reverse the decline by teaching 100,000 girls to code by the end of 2018 through our 100 Clubs Pledge, a partnership with state and local leaders, school districts, community organizations, and industry to launch

100 new Girls Who Code Clubs in every state.

Clubs Teach Girls

Sisterhood

Club girls join a safe and supportive environment of peers and role models and learn to see themselves as computer scientists. Beyond the Club, girls can tap into an alumni network of tens of thousands of girls across the country who are using computer science to solve problems they care about.

Code

Club girls learn the concepts of loops, variables, conditionals, and functions that form the basis for all programming languages –– whether they want to build a website, an app, or a robot. Returning Clubs girls can deepen their programming knowledge through extended activity sets.

Impact

Club girls work in teams to design and build a Computer Science “CS” Impact Project that solves real world problems they care about through code.
