What we do

Since 2011, Black Girls Code has supported girls of color in tech through coding education and more. We partner with schools and organizations to offer a range of programs, both in-person and virtual, for ages 7-25. Our initiatives go beyond coding to build confidence and connections, enhancing technical skills, community bonds, and career paths.

Education

Multi-week courses, workshops, and training events expand tech skill sets.

Community

Day camps, hackathons, and alumnae activities build connections.

Workforce Acceleration

Alumnae activities and corporate sponsorships pave career paths.

Program Spotlight

BGC has partnered with ServiceNow to provide training and support to our community to help you break into the IT job market.

Learn More

This summer we’re bringing BGC all around the country with day camps and intensive bootcamps. Participants will learn about topics and tools shaping the tech industry today, and express themselves with creative projects that put their new skills to work.

BGC partners with local schools, community organizations, and corporate supporters to offer Code Clubs: our weekly after-school program run by expert instructors and volunteers.

What Girls are saying

“Thanks to your support, in the two weeks I was here I learned three coding languages, made my own website, a self-portrait, talked to an astronaut in the ISS, and had so much fun. Without your support, I would not be here learning these amazing coding languages or making friends. I cannot thank you enough for one of the best experiences of my life.”

Pappy L.
"Black Girls Code has made a big difference in my childhood. It has helped me explore my passion for computer science and tech in general. Thanks to Black Girls Code, I've made friends and great memories. Black Girls Code has shown me the importance of Black women in tech. Thank you for giving to something that is important to me and many others."

Meron
“I’m surrounded by people who look like me. I’m surrounded by smart, young students who are so eager to do amazing things in the world, and then we have professionals who are leading by example who are telling us that you too are capable of doing so many great things.”
