Event description

Description

Volunteer with Repair the World at Digital Girl's Hour of Code event!

Digital Girl's mission is to encourage inner city youth, especially girls to pursue careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. They are motivated by the overall lag in the United States in producing an adequate number of STEM professionals as well as the under representation of women and people of color in STEM fields. Through early application, hands on training, mentorship, tutoring and social events Digital Girl will boost confidence, raise self esteem and STEM career awareness in less fortunate areas to create professionals who can be positive contributors to society.

Volunteers will support professional coders by helping the kids stay focused, energized, and excited. This is an introduction to block coding so nobody (volunteers or kids) needs to have any experience. We'll all be learning together! Lunch will be provided.

Accessibility Info: Our workshop is not ADA compliant because of the lack of bathroom space, but is otherwise wheechair accessible.

Ages for volunteers: 14+ please

Ages for kids: 5+

If you have any questions or want to learn more information, feel free to email Maya Hawkins at maya.hawkins@werepair.org.
