Our Mission

We empower girls by teaching them the digital skills they need to be successful as a global citizen. In our increasingly digital world, the ability to navigate technology is crucial for academic and economic advancement.

Our Program

We use a “gamified learning” approach to engage and build relationships while focusing on:

Our Digital Literacy Partner

  • Computer basics

  • Productivity tools

  • Digital Safety & Digital Lifestyles

  • Intro to Programming

Our hands-on activities teach the fundamentals of technology, problem solving and critical thinking. They are thoughtfully designed to teach various levels of digital literacy and are tailored to meet the needs of all of our students. We teach our curriculum in-person at our partner organizations versus delivering over the internet to ensure each student receives one-on-one mentoring. Our team uses internet based teaching tools, educational robots, and MOOC’s (Massive Open Online Courses) to work with the girls and youth side-by-side as they work through these courses and online programs.
