Girls Who Code! Free Virtual Summer Programs

Encourage your high school students to become coders this summer with Girls Who Code!

Girls Who Code is offering two free virtual programs this summer.  Students will learn the computer science skills they need to make an impact, meet inspiring professionals across diverse industries, and tap into lifelong college and career support to help them succeed in their first interviews and jobs. All high school girls and non-binary students are welcome to apply!

2-week Summer Immersion Program for current 9th-11th graders — participants will join live, virtual, supportive classrooms led by industry-leading companies like MetLife, Bank of America, and Accenture. They’ll participate in our brand-new game design course to learn the fundamentals of game design, UX, the iterative design process, and more. By the end of the program, they’ll build a suite of short games using the p5.js library for JavaScript developed specifically for creative coding. Eligible students can even apply for laptop or hotspot access and grants of up to $300 for financial support!

6-week Self-Paced Program for current 9th-12th graders — participants will learn to code through independent study and real-world projects. By the end of the program, they’ll earn beginner-level certificates of completion in HTML, CSS, or JavaScript for web development or intermediate-level certificates of completion in Python for Cybersecurity or Data Science.

For more information on Girls Who Code Virtual Summer Programs, check out the website or attend a webinar.

All eligible students are encouraged to apply and prioritize the enrollment of historically underrepresented students in tech, including students who are Black, Latinx, or are eligible for free or reduced lunch.

Apply by February 15th for priority consideration or by March 24th for the general application deadline.
