Our Vision: To increase the number of women of color in the digital space by empowering girls of color ages 7 to 17 to become innovators in STEM fields, leaders in their communities, and builders of their own futures through exposure to computer science and technology. To provide African-American youth with the skills to occupy some of the 1.4 million computing job openings expected to be available in the U.S. by 2020, and to train 1 million girls by 2040.
Your donation will help support our programs and workshops across the country.
Black Girls CODE is a proud supporter of the #FutureKatherineJohnsons #HiddenFigures
Our girls are ready to become the nextgen of tech leaders!
Our efforts to ensure 1M African American young ladies can become the future “Katherine Johnson” is well and alive. Our partnership with 20th Century Fox and highly acclaimed film, Hidden Figures, has confirmed for our tech divas that it’s only by taking extraordinary steps like these ladies, that anything is possible.
FutureKatherineJohnsons.com is a website built by our tech divas who are poised to make a difference in our world the same way that Katherine, Dorothy and Mary have in the upcoming film, HIDDEN FIGURES.
Check out their stories and see why our young ladies are the next "Katherine Johnson".
