Girls Who Code (NJ) and Girls Go Cyberstart Partner To Bring Free Resources to NJ High School Girls

Girls Who Code, an international nonprofit working to close the gender gap in technology, has teamed up with Girls Go Cyberstart, a skills-based competition designed to encourage high school girls to pursue cyber-based career opportunities. These free resources for New Jersey high school girls do not require any previous computer science experience. Girls Go Cyberstart teams can use Girls Who Code resources to develop coding skills to enhance their team’s experience. Girls Who Code offers $300 to help run a New Jersey Girls Who Code Club plus free t-shirts! Girls Go Cyberstart offers cash prizes for you and your school! Girls learn useful career building tech skills, build sisterhood and camaraderie.
