Award based on Outstanding Online Reviews
Downers Grove, IL (October 22, 2019) – TechGirlz, a nonprofit program of Creating IT Futures, announced today it has been named a “2019 Top-Rated Nonprofit” by GreatNonprofits, the leading provider of user reviews of charities and nonprofits.
TechGirlz provides free technology workshops for middle school girls in communities across the country, resulting in 20,000 girls served to date.
“We are honored to be named a 2019 Top-Rated Nonprofit,” says Amy Cliett, TechGirlz Director, for the third consecutive year. “We are proud of our accomplishments this year, including our recording setting event in the Spring.”
The Top-Rated Nonprofit Award is based on the rating and number of reviews that TechGirlz received from volunteers, donors and parents. One of our volunteer reviewers explained how easy it is to get involved when she commented, “TechGirlz provides all of the tools and guidance necessary to feel confident and ready to volunteer. From being a teaching assistant and just providing help with the students as needed to being the instructor and/or coordinating the whole workshop, the TechGirlz team makes it easy to get involved.”
Another noted just how much is gained from the organization, by both the girls and volunteers. “I have been teaching through TechGirlz for the past year, and I can’t even begin to say how much of a difference it has made in the lives of the girls who come in. They always leave the class empowered and excited about technology. This non-profit has also made a difference for me personally and professionally and helped me lose my imposter’s syndrome.”
“TechGirlz is a great example of a nonprofit program making a real difference in their community,” said Perla Ni, CEO of GreatNonprofits, “Their award is well-deserved recognition not only of their work, but the tremendous support they receive, as shown by the many outstanding reviews they have received from people who have direct experience working with TechGirlz.”
