Outreach Opportunities

Outreach

Mentors and role models can make a huge difference in helping more women and girls see themselves in tech! There are a lot of opportunities to help in big and small ways.

As the saying goes, charity begins at home. Consider volunteering for us at a commitment level that works for you.

If you don’t see the right fit now, please check back as we will update this page with the latest opportunities. If you have an outreach opportunity to share, contact Kim Wilkens (kim@tech-girls.org) with the details.

Girl Develop It

They are looking for new teachers, TAs and volunteers. If you are interested in getting involved in your local chapter of Girl Develop It, contact Kathryn Wagner (kathrynw@girldevelopit.com) or Elise Kain (elisek@girldevelopit.com).
