Join the Girls Who Code Community, become a Summer Intern!

Girls Who Code seeks motivated and enthusiastic applicants for our 2018 Summer Intern Program. Girls Who Code is a national non-profit working to close the gender gap in technology and diversify the image of what a programmer looks like and does. With our after school Clubs, seven-week Summer Immersion Program, two-week specialized Campus Program, and a 13-book New York Times best-selling series, we are leading the movement to inspire, educate, and equip young women to pursue 21st century opportunities. Interns will work directly with a staff member on a unique Summer Project that will further the reach and impact of Girls Who Code. With your help, we will reach over 50,000 girls across the United States by the end of the 2018 academic year.
