Girls Who Code works to inspire, educate and equip young women with the skills and resources to pursue academic and career opportunities in computer science.
Girls Who Code is increasing youth economic opportunities nationwide by scaling parallel and complementary programs: the Summer Immersion Program and Clubs Program. The Summer Immersion Program is an innovative approach to computer science education, pairing 250+ hours of intensive classroom instruction with diverse exposure opportunities and high-touch mentorship by the industry's top female leaders.
Leveraging the learnings from the Summer Immersion Program, the Clubs Program democratizes access to computer science education. Employing a flexible and proven curriculum, Girls Who Code Clubs are an after-school or weekend program offering fun and engaging exposure to computer science through monthly, project-based activities.
