What We Stand For
Educate, Empower, Inspire, Change
GCL was founded in 2015 to make emerging technology education accessible to all students, regardless of gender, race, or socioeconomic status. We support students through hands-on learning and connecting educators to resources, to bridge the education gap at its root for generations to come. Our goal is to enact long-term change.
While we support students in learning the fundamentals, our focus is identifying emerging areas of computer science and technology to teach in a simple, accessible way and starting conversations about to bring diverse perspectives and fair and equitable development to technology.
We bring our innovative AI summits and learn-to-teach programs to HBCUs, low-income centers, and Latinx communities. Everyone deserves a chance at a high-quality STEM education, and not only do we provide that to students identifying with minority groups in technology, but we guide them to become teachers, leaders, and changemakers on their own.
Project-based learning is at the core of our mission in an effort to focus on equiping the next generation with a strong theoretical foundation supplemented with impactful mini-projects to explore.
Ultimately, we partner with a host of companies to ensure that there is a strong, diverse, and knowledgeable future workforce educated and equipped to make an impact

Time To Act
Girls Computing League works hard every day to help students achieve their dreams of entering a technical career field. We work with companies both to create higher education opportunities for students and hunt for mentors willing to support the next generation of computer scientists. However, we are reliant on our global community of enthusiast and activists to bring about true change. To learn more about what we do and to keep up to date with future opportunities, consider signing up for our upcoming newsletter. We will send you occasional updates about the organization and let you know how you can help the next generation of female scientists and engineers. We cannot wait to see what GCL and you can do together.
