TechGirlz Partnership - Creating IT Futures
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 10,000 girls.

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

Creating IT Futures

A 501(c)(3) charity was established in 1998 by CompTIA, the Information Technology Industry Trade Association, as a way to help people improve their lives through IT careers.


We help populations that are under-represented in IT and individuals who are lacking in opportunity to prepare for, secure and be successful in IT careers.
