  • Where: European School VI
  • When: April 29, 2017
  • Registration for girls will open 15 March

How can I help?

There are many ways that you can help support Girl Tech Fest 2017! If you are available the day of the event, April 29th, look below for the different volunteer opportunities. Not available? You can still lend a hand by promoting the event to possible participants, volunteers or sponsors.

When can I help?

We need volunteers for the setup starting at 4:30 pm on Friday as well as volunteers during the event on Saturday. If you're able, you can volunteer for both days or one!

Volunteer Opportunities

Registration Team - Our ticketing system for GTF runs through Eventbrite which creates a ticketing system that can be checked through barcode scanning with a corresponding “Eventbrite Organizer” App. As was noted during our meeting, the registration for last year was not as coordinated as it needed to be and understaffed. Working as a member of the Registration Team, your job would be to arrive early on the day of GTF to help set up for registration and check in the girls. We would also like some (or all) of the members to help us brainstorm a more streamlined check in process. Right now, we are envisioning double the number of tables compared to last year but would love to hear more input.

Coordination Team - The coordination team encompasses a wide range of duties including: hall monitoring, translation (especially during the plenary sessions) and setup & teardown. Members of the coordination team could also help with registration and vice versa, as registration will not be necessary all day.

Workshop Leader - As a workshop leader you would have the opportunity to work with a small group (up to 12 girls) aged 11-15 in the language of your choice. The topic you pick should be related to the intersection of digital and creativity. Previous topics have ranged from creating your own font to being a female leader (see below for a list of examples). If you already have an idea for a workshop please email me with your topic, the languages you are comfortable in and a note on what kind of equipment the girls (and/or you) will need. If you want to run a workshop but are unsure about a topic or have questions, please email me.

Sponsorship Opportunities

In-kind - Donations of equipment, swag for the girls, providing food or drinks and any other sort of material donation is appreciated.

Financial - Financial donations are extremely helpful in supporting the event because it allows us to quickly route the money to where it is needed for the event. To see an outline of the PR opportunities that come with financial donations, refer to the GTF Sponsor Brief.


Important to Note


  • If you want or need to drive your car onto the premises we need your license plate number to give to the security.
