Events & Meetings

Learn, Grow & Inspire

In accordance with GirlsComputingLeagues Mission, GCL regularly hosts summits, camps, and events for students to be a part of. We work hard to ensure event accessibility to every student who wishes to be engaged and provide travel grant and free attendance wherever possible. 

 Our Upcoming Virtual Events

Given the COVID-19 Pandemic, meeting in-person to collaborate and learn from one another has presented new limitations, however, all can be overcome through technology. That is why GirlsComputingLeague is still committed to providing educational resources and events for students to still engage with even as we are apart due to social distancing.

Check out some of the events that we have in the pipeline for students right now!
