Bringing More Females into the Tech Industry
“You can only be what you can see.”
From #GivingTuesday to the End of 2022. Any donations received will fund scholarships for 7 pairs of mothers and daughters to attend our "Mommy & Me" Web Development Boot Camp for free.
Webgyrlz Code has been teaching computer programming in the Midlands of South Carolina since 2015. We have seen there is a need to expand our outreach.
In 2023 Webgyrlz Code will launch our "Mommy & Me" Computer Science Boot Camps ™. Programming classes that take a 2-generational approach to bring more female software engineers into the workforce.
We are planning to conduct our first "Mommy & Me" Web Development Boot Camp in Chester, South Carolina in January 2023.
- The day ends with enrolling the adult learners in the free, self-paced SC Codes programming course to help them move to the next step of becoming a software engineer.
- The girls will attend a bonus session to learn how to use their creativity to build online games and animations.
- Both groups will also attend a career discussion to learn what it’s like to be a female working in the tech industry.
