Why Join Girls Who Code? The Problem: Computing is where the jobs are — and where they will be in the future — but girls are being left behind.

Girls Who Code is a free after-school program for 6th-12th grade girls to join a sisterhood of supportive peers and role models working to close the technology gender gap using computer science to change the world, and the core values are simple.

Sisterhood: A 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 for all programming languages.

Impact:

Work in teams to design a computer science impact project that solves real world problems that you actually care about.

The curriculum is designed for students with a wide range of computer science experience.
