When & Where
Techbridge is an award-winning national nonprofit that is engineering a revolution for girls to change the world through science, technology, engineering and math (“STEM”). Starting in Oakland 15 years ago, Techbridge built a reputation for delivering innovative after-school programs to girls in grades 5-12 at under-resourced public schools. Today, Techbridge continues to empower girls through a unique proven model that combines hands-on projects, field trips, role models, family engagement, and trainings to teachers, school districts and partners. Our programs also build confidence, problem-solving skills, perseverance, and public speaking abilities that serve a girl well in any career. Techbridge is now expanding nationally to bring its award-winning programs to more girls in more cities including Seattle and Washington DC, and scaling impact through innovative collaborations with national youth-serving groups like Girl Scouts, YMCA, and Society of Women Engineers. With every donor and volunteer, the revolution for girls’ empowerment grows. Join us!
