About the Girls in Tech Mentorship Program
The Girls in Tech MENTORSHIP Program was developed to provide integrated, engaging and educational high-touch workshops for young girls ages K-12, college professionals and young entrepreneurs. 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.
Some programs that we’re launching include:
- Girls In Tech one-on-one(launched summer 2011): Our Mentoring program is about building relationships of trust between a young person and an established leader for the purpose of providing support, encouragement and guidance. Mentors are matched one-on-one with the potential mentee for support and career guidance
- Summer Camp: a program focused on tech and innovation-oriented field trips during the summertime
- Technovation Challenge: a day-long mobile app building workshop
- Girls in Tech Labs(launched summer 2011): a series of workshops that enables students to embrace a business concept and launch their own company
- Girls in Tech 101(launched summer 2011): a series of workshops that provides students with the basic technological and software skills to succeed in their classes and future careers
- Girls in Tech Entrepreneurship and Leadership Program: a series of lectures and skill-building classes from female role models in the technology and business fields
- Girls in Tech/GirlScout USA IMAGINE YOUR STEM FUTURE workshop: The four part series is designed to pique 9th-12th grade girls’ interest in science, technology, engineering and math careers, while inspiring them through Girl Scout and GITm leadership experience. Each part includes an icebreaker, two hands-on activities, and a closing career exploration. As a kick off to our partnership launching program, 3 pilot cities (Portland, San Francisco and Los Angeles) have been activated as the first phase of GITm/GSUSA STEM 101 workshop collaboration.
