I’m reaching out on behalf of Kode With Klossy, a national non-profit who hosts two-week camps across the country to teach young women to code and inspire them to pursue their passions in a tech-driven world.
We are thrilled to share that we will be hosting free two-week long coding camps in Chicago for young women aged 13 -18 on July 8- July 19.
As a leader in computer science education, we wanted to share this opportunity with your community. We hope that the young women you reach or who participate with other STEAM organizations in your network might wish to apply to our free summer program.
In our two-week camp, young women learn to build web or mobile applications in a collaborative and creative environment focused on fostering community. In addition to direct learning, we host inspiring women in technology as part of a speaker series. The program is 100% free for students including laptops, lunches/snacks as well as transportation stipends, if/as needed.
Our application deadline is March 31 11:59 PST. Young women can apply through a quick, easy and creative application at kodewithklossy.com/apply!
Please let us know if you have any questions and feel free to share this program with any other groups working with young women in your area. Attached please find a printable flyer that can be hung or otherwise circulated and shared that provides a brief overview of the program with our 2019 cities.
Our gratitude for your support and partnership. We hope to work together to empower young women, who will change the world. Let’s get them there by reaching them how to code.
