    Summer Opportunities


    Girls Who Code's 7-week Summer Immersion Program teaches 10th–11th grade girls and non-binary students the computer science skills they need to make an impact in their community while preparing for a career in tech. In the Summer Immersion Program, participants will learn about:

     

    • CAREERS — They’ll meet inspiring female role models in the field and get an inside look at the tech world through guest speakers, workshops, fun field trips and more! Their summer will be spent in classrooms hosted at the world’s top companies like AT&T, Goldman Sachs, Warner Brothers, and Disney.

     

    • SKILLS AND IMPACT — They’ll learn to code through hands-on real-world projects in art and storytelling, robotics, video games, websites, apps, and more. By the end of the summer, they will create a final project that solves a real-world problem they care about -- combining their new coding skills with their passions to change the world!

     

    • SISTERHOOD —As essential members of our Girls Who Code sisterhood, they will learn in a supportive, girls-first environment and make lifelong friendships that encourage them to be brave, take risks, and stand up for what matters to them!

     

    Need-based Summer Stipends of up to $1200 to cover transportation and living costs are available for students who qualify.

     

    Girls Who Code also offers online webinars for you to learn more about the program. You can sign up for an upcoming online webinar here.

    Foundry10 Summer Internships

    The internship program at foundry10 is a great way for students to not only have the opportunity to learn something new or expand what they already know, but also what it means to work in a real office environment; getting exposed to the workplace early on to develop soft skills within the workplace. Essentially, we treat our interns like employees to give them a real world office experience. Here is a link to our internship page (https://www.foundry10.org/programs/internships/high-school-internships) which details the specifics of the program, and our research involved.
