    After completing the GirlCode Program, you could land a junior software engineering role and make upwards of $70K, forge your path in the world of alternative education, have a clear sense of what you want to study in college, or maybe even join our team full time!



    It’s 2016 and only 18% of software engineers are women. The GirlCode Program is designed to change that statistic and empower a community of passionate women to use technology to solve big problems in the world.  ?


    During the morning you will have an internship at The Coding Space doing either marketing, curriculum development, business development, or operations. Our team will place you according to your passion, skill-set and personal goals. In the afternoons you will be learning to coding or teaching Scratch in our after school program.


    • You will meet world-class female mentors from Google, Mashable, or Pinterest
    • Our team will help align the GirlCode Program to your goals in order for you to focus, develop, and hone in the skills you are passionate about?

      Through the GirlCode Gap Semester, I was able to discover my love for coding. I now go to Georgetown University and study Computer Science. I loved being able to explore the different parts of business, have personalized mentorship, and explore NYC. I would definitely recommend this to any other girls who are curious about learning to code or technology. It's a very customizable program, and their team will work with you to make sure you get out of the program what you want.

      Have fun!
