CHARLESTON, S.C. - What do your daughters want to be when they grow up? If you think they might want to be tech stars, get them started now with our free Y GIRLS CODE program presented by YWCA Greater Charleston!

They'll learn to code in a fun, friendly way at one of our three participating branches, and join a sisterhood of girls like them as they discover how to use technology to solve a problem happening to people they know. They'll learn concepts behind all programming languages, too! Whether they want to build an app, create a website, design a game, or program a robot, we'll deliver all the skills necessary to make it happen.

After they finish, they can tap into a network of girls, women, and leaders in Charleston and see what's possible in the tech industry. 

There are two types of classes, one designed for elementary and middle school girls, and a second one for girls in grades 6 through 10. Weekly attendance is important, and registration is required.
