Teen Advisory Board

About the Teen Advisory Board (TAB)

TechGirlz’ Teen Advisory Board is a group of teens in grade 9-12 who want to inspire middle school girls to explore technology. 

Being only a couple of years older than the audience they serve, they provide near-peer support and mentorship to the middle school girls and also guidance to the TechGirlz team as we design new workshops. 

Additionally, the teens spend time together, getting to know each other and becoming a source of support and community as they move forward in their own tech endeavors.

Teen Advisory Board Goals

  • The TAB will give high school girls in the STEM field a voice in creating and sustaining services for middle school girls.
  • TAB gives TechGirlz a chance to hear from teenage girls who have a strong interest in technology, and who can provide valuable input into technology that appeals to girls.
  • TAB members will develop leadership, organizational and collaborative skills by working together on this board, thereby developing skills that are needed for them to become future technology leaders.
