Inspiring girls to explore the possibilities of technology
TechGirlz is a nonprofit organization dedicated to reducing the gender gap in technology occupations, by focusing on girls at the crucial middle school age. We offer free workshops to get girls interested in different kinds of technology, show them varied career options, and connect them with professionals in technology fields.
There's more to tech careers than just coding. We're here to show middle school girls just that. Through our free hands-on TechShopz, we show them that technology can match their interests and be fun and rewarding.
10,000+ girls attended our free TechShopz
81% of girls changed their mind about a tech career after a TechShop
Hundreds of volunteers are running TechShopz globally
