Girls Who Code: Local chapter highlight

Discover the Girls Who Code chapters in Ting towns.

Girls Who Code is a non-profit organization on a mission to close the gender gap in tech.

In 1995, 37% of computer scientists were women. Today, that number has dropped to 24%. We’re determined to reverse this trend and start seeing more women entering the field. Knowing that we most often lose these promising potential coders between the ages of 13 and 17, Girls Who Code offers opportunities for teenage and preteen girls to explore and learn coding in a fun and friendly environment. Here are some of the local chapters that are doing amazing work in Ting towns!


The University of Arizona hosts a Girls Who Code chapter for 6-12th grade students. While the program targets young girls and non-binary youth, they emphasize this opportunity is open to anyone of any gender identity. Visit their website to learn more about this program.
