TechGYRLS(r) is an afterschool program that engages girls in grades 3-8 in fun science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) activities. Currently, women hold less than 25% of STEM jobs, but are needed to make improvements in these fields. Our mission is to help reduce the gender gap in these fields by cultivating interest at a young age. We aim to provide a safe space for girls, particularly those from low-income backgrounds, to explore a variety of subjects and develop their critical thinking and problem-solving.
Through this internship, participants will gain valuable skills related to the planning and implementation of youth programing.
The TechGYRLS(r) Internship Program offers participants the opportunity to gain valuable experience in the areas of education and youth development.
