About Girls Who Code


Girls Who Code is an international organization with over 185,000 girls around the world learning how to code through their chapter.  According to their website, their mission is:

 

"Girls Who Code is on a mission to close the gender gap in technology and to change the image of what a programmer looks like and does."



Through The Array Foundation, we were able to host and sponsor a chapter right here in Cheyenne.

About the Cheyenne Girls Who Code Club


Girls Who Code Cheyenne is led by Ana Monzon who is a software developer at Systems Analyst, and facilitates our community's Girls Who Code Chapter. Cohorts meet weekly for 15 weeks at the Array School of Technology and Design in downtown Cheyenne. Class size is limited to 15 girls and computers will be provided for the girls to use during the course.

Ana states, "Girls Who Code Clubs are meant for girls to join a sisterhood of supportive peers and role models, and use computer science to change the world. The Girls Who Code Clubs encourage middle and high school girls to impact their communities in a positive way through code. We are excited to offer this in Cheyenne."
 
For more information, to volunteer, or to donate, reach out to Ana directly at: ana@thearrayfoundation.
