Federation of Ontario Public Libraries

For the past few months, we’ve been receiving requests from educators across Canada to open up Girls Who Code Clubs to students ages 11 and 12. We’re excited to announce that Clubs are now for students ages 11-18! We have updated our Outreach Toolkit to reflect these changes. Could you please share this update with your network in an email, newsletter, and/or social media? I’ve included a sample blurb below.

Please let me know if you have any questions!

Best,

Girls Who Code Clubs are now for students ages 11-18!

Join students and educators across the country by partnering with Girls Who Code to bring computer science opportunities to girls in your community! Girls Who Code Clubs are FREE after-school programs that are designed to get girls ages 11-18 excited about computer science. In Clubs, girls engage in fun and engaging online coding tutorials, build community through interactive activities, learn about inspiring role models in tech, and work together to design solutions to real-world problems facing their communities. Clubs are designed to be run by anyone, regardless of experience with computer science. This Clubs Overview flyer includes all program details.

Learn more by signing up for an upcoming Girls Who Code webinar.
