To Our Girls Inc. Alumnae, Community Partners, Donors, Families, Funders and Supporters,

We are excited to share with you that yesterday, October 9, 2014 we finalized the purchase of our long term home, here at 35 Park Place! Without your support this could not have happened and we thank you.

 

We appreciate all of your help, your letters and show of support that helped make this happen for our girls. We are thrilled that the rich history within these walls, and the place that we have served girls for so many years, will be preserved for all of our girls for the future.

 

In the next few weeks, you will hear about our celebration and we would love for you to be a part of it. We thank you again on behalf of our girls and look forward to officially celebrating with you in the near future.October92014Celebration

Girls Inc. Joins Google on Made with Code Initiative to encourage Girls’ Interest in Technology

 

Waterbury, CT- Girls Inc. proudly announces that today, it joins Google and fellow supporters, including Chelsea Clinton, Seventeen, Mindy Kaling, MIT Media Lab, and National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT), to kick off Made with Code. The initiative will aim to inspire millions of girls to learn to code, and to help them see coding as a means to pursue their dream careers. Today, only 0.4% of female college freshmen plan to major in CS.

This Fall, Girls Inc. of Greater Waterbury will host coding parties reaching thousands of girls with an introduction to coding, building upon programming where girls explore science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) as part of their lives and potential career options. In addition, an intensive coding program will also be piloted in early 2015.

 

Made with Code will also feature stories of women and girl coders who are creating a diverse array of projects with code, as well as introductory coding projects that can help build girls’ confidence and show them they can code.

For more information about this program, please call the program office, 203-756-4639 or email reception@girlsincswct.org.
