Who We Are

About the TechGirlz program

Powered by CompTIA Spark, TechGirlz workshops provide hands-on learning opportunities for girls in grades 5-8. By solving real-world challenges, participants build confidence and open their minds to new possibilities. With the support of partners in communities across the country, CompTIA Spark is  empowering more girls to become tomorrow’s tech leaders. 

What we offer

Access free, hands-on technology workshops for girls in grades 5-8 on topics including designing mobile apps, podcasting, AI and more. 

Help inspire girls in tech with our workshop partnership program for companies, organizations and community groups. Comprehensive workshop plans make it easy for anyone to run a workshop.

Chosen at the start of each school year, our Teen Advisory Board is a group of energetic teens from around the country who meet together (virtually and in-person) to help advise on future TechGirlz topics as well as working together to lead their own workshops.
