Girls Who Code Clubs: Volunteer Instructor Application 

Girls Who Code is a national non-profit organization that aims to close the gender gap in technology. Our programs inspire, educate, and equip girls with the computing skills to pursue 21st century opportunities

Piloted in 2012 and officially launched in Chicago, New York City, Boston, Detroit, and San Francisco in 2013, Girls Who Code Clubs are expanding nationally to offer computer science education and tech industry exposure to 6th-12th grade girls during the academic year. Please read and download the Volunteer Instructor Overview for more information. 

Please note: This application is broken into three parts: information about you, your availability and location preferences, and six (6) short answer questions. We estimate that this application will take 30 - 45 minutes to complete in one sitting.
