Programs_NextUp_TechGirlz
NextUp is partnering with TechGirlz to reduce the gender gap in technology occupations. TechGirlz develops fun and educational hands¬-on workshops, called TechShopz, and an annual Entrepreneur Summer Camp. These efforts aim to get middle¬-school age girls interested in different kinds of technology and demonstrate the varied options of careers available. TechGirlz enables them to interact with professionals who have carved out successful careers in technology fields, and empower them to be future technology leaders. TechGirlz has reached more than 5,000 girls in the past 5 years.

IT pros who wish to volunteer with TechGirlz can sign up here.
