Another Message From Stephanie

This is an exciting time for Richmond Virginia Area’s very first community based Girls Who Code Club. Girls Who Code provides hand-on programming exercises that can be applied to real life situations. Our host, Girls For A Change, has opened it’s doors and hearts in support of Girls Who Code RVA and our club meets in a great environment especially for girls using up-to-date equipment donated to us by Twitter!

The girls we have welcomed into our club are encouraged to participate in projects that meet their interests. They are research real world problems and use computer science to create a solution that impacts the RVA community.

Please spread the word, plan to come to one of the meetings and meet our amazing team of ladies that have been working hard to get the program started! Bring a friend to learn what brings value to a Girls Who Code Club. Snacks will also be provided. We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to help close the gender gap in technology!



Message from Stephanie

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.
