Who is Girls Who Code for?

We are hosting this year’s club for girls ages 10 up through 18 (grades 5 to 12). In the past, we’ve offered the clubs to girls in grades 6 through 12 are welcome in the club.

Girls Who Code clubs programs are designed for female participants, regardless of gender assignment at birth or legal recognition, we encourage our Clubs to welcome any member who wishes to join the Girls Who Code mission irrespective of gender identity.  Girls Who Code takes a gender-specific approach to our programming. This means that our programming is one that keeps the focus on girls, and considers the biases that might impact their experience. We deliver this by providing girls with safe, girls-focused spaces, and centering curricula on women in tech so that girls can imagine themselves in computing roles. Any member–regardless of gender identity–who wishes to support our mission is encouraged to join the Sisterhood!  Please read their complete FAQ answer here.
