The Girls in Tech MENTORSHIP Programs was developed to provide integrated, engaging and educational high-touch workshops for girls/women ages K-12, colleges and working professionals. In an effort to encourage girls to enjoy, embrace and understand the importance of math, tech and science at a young age, we are building the curriculum which will enable girls to learn the basic skills, software programs and gain entrepreneurial exposure to become leaders within their communities, academia and in their future careers in the tech space.

We need your support: Become a mentor or mentee, Become a sponsor, Interested in volunteering or internship, Interested in being our media partner, or let’s chat about how can we partner with you! To learn more: Contact ivo@girlsintech.net |  follow @MsSonicFlare
