About Newburgh Girls Code Club:

Newburgh Girls Code Club (NGCC) is a youth leadership development program designed to foster youth STEAM learning opportunities and close the gender gap in tech. Based on the Girls Who Code curriculum, girls and non-binary youth ages 10-16 are using Computer Science to change the world: We build a diverse sisterhood of supportive peers and role models; explore fun, online coding tutorials; identify issues that matter to us in our community and design real solutions to address them through code.

YOU are the next generation of coders who will make an impact. In this club, you will learn:

  • From professional coding mentors 
  • The basics of computer science and what a computer scientist does
  • How to write code in different languages, using Scratch, Python, HTML / CSS, JavaScript
  • About unconventional career paths for coders & programmers
  • How to amplify your voice and share your coding stories with other young coders
  • Different coding roles, like Designer, Problem Solver, and Coder
  • The art of storytelling through podcasting 

 Check out some of our past work on Weebly here.

NGCC is hosted by the Newburgh Free Library and facilitated by OpenHub, an open ecosystem tech resource center, and realized in partnership with PANJA, a culture + wellness studio, both based in the city of Newburgh, NY. This program is made possible with support from the Rowley Family Foundation Fund for Women & Children.
