GirlCode Program

Bridging the Gender Gap in Tech

Recent research suggests that nearly 65 percent of today’s kindergartners will land in jobs that don’t yet exist, likely in the technology, science, and math industries. Yet, as of 2015, only 18 percent of graduates with a computer science degree identified as female. Now more than ever, we need to close the gender gap in tech by creating opportunities for inclusivity.

The Coding Space is committed to being a part of the solution by providing mentorship, opportunities for growth, and equitable access to girls, women, transgender people, gender non-conforming people, and non-binary people. Our welcoming and inclusive GirlCode program utilizes the same curriculum as our co-ed Beginner and Advanced classes while fostering a safe and supportive female-identifying space for our GirlCoders to develop their computational and critical thinking skills, intellectual confidence, and passion for STEM.

What GirlCoders and Their Parents Have to Say About Our Program

The atmosphere at GirlCode is so judge-free and friendly!

Yursa, age 9

Coding Space has a very positive spirit of collaborative learning. My daughter loves the classes and looks forward to them every week. She's learned a great deal about coding but also has developed a real confidence.

Julie, Brooklyn

All my other coding classes are with boys. At GirlCode, the community is way more supportive.
