PEER-LED COMPUTING EDUCATION FOR GIRLS

Partner with a Local Student and ApireIT

Non-profit organizations are invited to work with National Center for Women & Information Technology AiC high school awardees to apply for up to $3,000 in funds to bring computer science programs for girls to your community. AspireIT Partner Organizations:

Oversee programs, particularly in safety and participant satisfaction

Serve as a fiscal agent for AspireIT program funds

NCWIT AspireIT is designed to teach K-12 girls programming fundamentals and computational thinking in fun, creative, and hands-on environments. AspireIT participants are ultimately encouraged to contribute their unique perspectives and ideas to future innovations. Using a near-peer model, program leaders teach younger girls technology fundamentals and are supported by Partner Organizations from the NCWIT community. The relationship between AspireIT Leaders and their AspireIT Program Organizations fosters mentoring with technical professionals, increases young women’s confidence in their computing abilities, and develops valuable leadership skills. These programs don’t happen without the generous gift of your mentorship – so please join in and revolutionize the face of technology!
