OVERVIEW

The ‘IT Girl’ Summer Series is a four week digital and hands on learning camp for girls ages 8-16 to learn in-demand technology concepts. Additionally, our workshops and programs focus on discovering, pursuing, and succeeding in technology through the exposure of technical concepts. Students do not need to have any prior technical experience, and all materials will be provided. We ask all students at least have a strong desire to learn more about tech.

Financial aid assistance is available, to families that qualify.

WHO MAY APPLY

Our summer series is open to young women of color ages 8-16. No technology experience necessary! We accept students based on a number of criteria including their interest level in technology and the popularity of your child's first choice of technology. Although this camp serves girls of color and underrepresented minorities The Next IT Girl does not discriminate based on race or nationality.

 

CAMP DETAILS

Students ARE required to be present at all scheduled sessions every Saturday morning. Therefore, please schedule appointments for times outside of the summer series hours. Please note that this is NOT an overnight camp and camp duration is for two hours, Saturdays only.
