Girls Who Code Club Facilitator
Play Like a Girl!®
Prepare our students for the future workforce. Volunteer with our new Girls Who Code Club at Play Like a Girl!
Computing skills are the most sought-after in the US job market, with demand growing 3X the national average. Computing is where the jobs are - and where they will be in the future - but girls across the US are being left behind. Today, less than a quarter of computing jobs are held by women, and that number is declining.
You can help reverse the decline. Girls Who Code Clubs inspire, educate, and equip our girls for tomorrow’s computing jobs. Help us bring FREE Girls Who Code Clubs to our community by volunteering as a Clubs Facilitator. Applications for Spring 2021 are open now.
Clubs are FREE after-school programs for 6-12th grade girls to use computer science to impact their community and join our sisterhood of supportive peers and role models.
Clubs are led by Facilitators, who can be teachers, computer scientists, librarians, parents, or volunteers from any background or field. Many Facilitators have NO technical experience and learn to code alongside their Club members.

We envision a world where all girls have the opportunity to realize their full potential.

To accomplish this, we deliver a cost-effective and innovative experience that goes beyond the playing field to build confidence and inspire leadership in girls during the critical middle school years. Governed by a 13-member volunteer Board of Directors, Play Like a Girl directly benefits more than 1,250 girls and women through year-round programs and events. Our multi-year program model harnesses the collective power of collegiate and professional women to coach and mentor girls, helping them develop skills that lead to successful careers.
Play Like a Girl! is a hip, innovative and inspiring resource for girls’ health, powered by a creative online network, targeted community outreach and live events.
