My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Goodgirls Write Code, Virginia Beach, VA, USA
My experience with Goodgirls Write Code this summer as a volunteer and mentor to girls between the ages of 9 and 14 had a tremendous impact on me personally. I was able to combine two of my passions in life: computer science and working with children. The curriculum focuses on encouraging and motivating girls to excel in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math, or STEM. Everyone I worked with from the founder of Goodgirls Write Code to the interns and volunteers all had a common goal in mind - to develop the next generation leading ladies in computer science, aka STEM stars. Lessons are built around computer science topics such as programming in a way that not only helps them learn a new skill but also improves the girls’ self-esteem as well as their relationships with others and their community as a whole. I highly recommend Goodgirls Write Code to others looking to volunteer for a non-profit and to teachers in schools looking to incorporate an exemplary computer science program. I look forward to working with Goodgirls Write Code again next summer!
