BUT WHY IS THIS?
Lack of resources and education
Lack of Mentors and role models
Girls ReCode was founded as a high school club to teach other high school girls how to code!
Girls ReCode became a mentorship club that taught elementary and middle school girls how to code.
Girls ReCode expanded into a national organization with girls across the country teaching several coding workshops.
Girls ReCode held its first national all-virtual summer coding camp teaching girls how to build apps and websites!
Girls ReCode organized its first hackathon for girls and gender minorities, raising over $3000 with over 90 participants.
What we do
Girls ReCode wants to target all of these causes for the STEM gender gap by giving young girls access to many female mentors in STEM, access to free resources, classes, curriculum, and a safe space for all young girls in STEM.
