Help build the New York Chapter of Black Girls CODE
Allow us to re-introduce ourselves:
We are Black Girls CODE, a nonprofit organization whose mission has transformed to a global movement to give young girls of color, age 7-17, the tools to become inventors, leaders and creators of their own future in the world’s technology economy. To date we have educated and introduced computer programming to over 1,200 girls of color (Black, Latina and Native American).
Since last year's Summer of CODE 2012 campaign, Black Girls CODE have received requests from over 80 cities around the nation and in the Caribbean Islands asking us to bring our workshops to their communities. Dedicated to our mission, we are once again bootstrapping and looking for your help to join us on our mission in building the next generation of techies.
This event will support the development of our New York Chapter. We hope to see you around!

About Summer of CODE
Black Girls CODE’s Summer of CODE campaign was created as vehicle to bridge the digital divide and change the face of the technology industry in the United States. The campaign serves as an awareness program to future Black Girls CODE's workshops taking place in cities all over the country. Black Girls CODE will travel to 10 new cities in 2013 over the span of 45 days to introduce young girls of color (Black, Latina and Native American) to computer programming and digital technology.
Cities during 2013's campaign include: Los Angeles, CA; Memphis, TN; Detroit, MI; Washington, D.C.; Pittsburgh, PA; Chicago, IL; New Orleans, LA; Denver, CO; New York, NY; Miami, FL.
