Facilitate a Club

Girls Who Code Clubs are led by Facilitators, who are 18+ and can be teachers, computer scientists, librarians, parents, college students or volunteers from any background or field. Many Facilitators have NO technical experience and learn to code alongside their Club members. That’s why we use the term “Facilitator” instead of “teacher.” Our Club Facilitators guide Club girls through the curriculum, helping them to build sisterhood within the Club and learn to use computer science to impact their community.

What We’re Looking For

You are:

  • 18+
  • Available 3-4 hours per week, including travel & prep time
  • Comfortable learning alongside Club girls as they explore the foundational computer science concepts of variables, loops, conditionals and functions. Our curriculum is designed so that anyone can facilitate a Club; no computer science experience is needed! In fact, many Facilitators have NO technical background. Here’s how Girls Who Code supports Facilitators!
  • Passionate about Girls Who Code’s mission to close the gender gap in technology and have the ability to foster community within your Girls Who Code Club.

What You’ll Facilitate

You’ll facilitate a project-based curriculum that teaches girls to use computer science to impact their community and help provide a supportive sisterhood of peers and role models within the Club to sustain their interest in computer science. The broad set of skills Clubs teach include:

  • Teamwork
  • Confidence
  • Time Management
  • Communication
  • Functions
  • Variables
  • Conditionals
  • Loops

Where You’ll Facilitate

Some of our Clubs can supply space and computers but need a Facilitator like you to walk the Club through the curriculum each week. Apply today!
