FOPL is partnering with Girls Who Code to bring free computer science opportunities to girls across our community and would love for your public library to host a Club!
As a Girls Who Code Community Partner, we are joining students, parents and educators across the nation to promote gender equity in tech. We would love for you to take advantage of our partnership by hosting a Girls Who Code Club! Any 18+ adult who is passionate about the movement is eligible to lead a Club – that means you!
Girls Who Code Clubs are FREE after-school programs that are designed to get girls ages 13-18 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.
To learn more about Girls Who Code Clubs, you can sign up for a Girls Who Code Webinar here.
Please let me know if you have any questions about how to get started, and thanks for supporting our partnership with Girls Who Code!
