I am super grateful and so excited to help bring Girls Who Code to in RVA!
After programming for 5 years with FIRST ®, I began participating in Girls Who Code clubs, where I have learned some important programming languages. This has stoked my love of programming and created an opportunity for me to give back to my community. In April, of 2017 I was selected by Girls Who Code to travel to Atlanta, GA for a coding immersion program with 19 other girls at G.E (General Electric). Since the closest Girls Who Code club was over an hour away, I saw a strong need for Girls Who Code in Central Virginia
After the immersion program, Angela Patton, the CEO of Girls For A Change and founder of CAMP DIVA gave me the opportunity as a Girl Ambassador to facilitate coding workshops for young girls of color.
We just had our first information session for Girls Who Code RVA, which went great! I am looking forward to working with Sister Brooke, Sister Angela and Sister Teresa on this great program.
Look no further!
We will be holding Information Sessions for the next three Tuesdays before the program begins. We welcome all potential students, parents, volunteers and sponsors to come learn more about the program and our goals for our first semester.
September 19, September 26, and October 3 — 7:00pm – 9:00pm.
They will be held at Girls For A Change: 100 Buford Road, Richmond, VA 23235.
Please spread the word and plan to come to one of the meetings. Meet our amazing team of ladies that have been working hard to get the program started! Bring a friend. Snacks will be provided. We can’t wait to see you there!

I am honored and so excited to start this club in the Greater Richmond Area! Lucky enough, I connected with the amazing Angela Patton, CEO of Girls For A Change and Founder of CAMP DIVA. She has allowed us to use her awesome center to run our Girls Who Code Chapter.
We are hard at work to get our Fall 2017 program up and running. We are in the works of creating a few Information Sessions within our community to inform everyone of our work and gain participation! We will connect with our elementary, middle and high schools to promote the organization and help us gain students. We will network with our affiliate organizations, colleges and universities to
