Additional Details

https://secure.plum BGC is partnering with Smart Buddies in summer camp sessions. Smart Buddies provides programmable scooters for students to program through their application on IOS devices. Videos depicting what the students are working on can be found here. There will also be Gaming and IOS camps (dates listed below). The Summer Camp Student Support will be responsible for working with our Tech;Divas in debugging, troubleshooting the projects & activities that they have worked on.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have volunteer training, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have pre-made curriculum, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $2,355 , allowing us to cultivate the next generation of coders we hope to grow the number of women of color in technology and give underrepresented girls a chance to become the future leaders in technology.

Launched in 2011, Black Girls CODE (BGC) is devoted to showing the world that black girls can code, and do so much more. By reaching out to the community through workshops and after school programs, Black Girls CODE introduces computer programming and technology to girls from underrepresented communities in technology areas such as web design, robotics, gaming, mobile app development and more.

  • Volunteer Manager provides overview of an ongoing tech capacity and need they have over the next 2-4 weeks
  • Volunteer and Volunteer Manager align on the scope of ongoing support that the Volunteer will provide to address this need
Step 1: Ongoing Support
