Girls Who Code, a leading national non-profit with the mission to close the gender gap in technology, offers free after-school Clubs for 3-5 and 6-12 grade students to join our sisterhood of supportive peers and role models using computer science to change the world. The application for the 2019-20 school year and is now open. To start a free Club, visit www.girlswhocode.com/Clubs.
6-12 Grade Clubs
Using our online curriculum, students engage in fun online coding tutorials, build community through coding and learn about inspiring role models. No CS experience is required to run a Club. Using their new CS skills, Club members work together on a project to impact their communities. We offer grant funding for our Clubs! For students in 11thgrade and up, we also offer our alumni network, #HireMe. We provide ample resources, access to our community, and no big commitment is necessary, just the desire to learn code in a fun, supportive setting.
3-5 Grade Clubs
Students learn basic CS principles with our unplugged Clubs. Guided by our free books (we provide 5 free copies per Club), students read, discuss and work on activities, encouraging learning and bravery. Clubs can be run entirely offline, with optional online activities. No CS experience is required to run a Club and we offer grant funding. The time commitment is entirely flexible.
If you would like to start 5 or more Clubs, we would love to partner with you, providing additional grant funding, resources and a dedicated partnership manager at Girls Who Code, Eve Balick, to help you.
To join our 350+ Clubs in NJ or for partnership, contact Eve Balick at firstname.lastname@example.org.
