St. Thomas-based Girls Who Code Club Seeks Volunteers


Girls Who Code, a nonprofit organization dedicated to building the largest pipeline of future female engineers in the U.S.A., has approved the establishment of a chapter in the United States Virgin Islands (Club Code VI728), hosted at the University of the Virgin Islands, St. Thomas campus. A call has been issued for volunteer Facilitators, 18 years and up for activities beginning this fall.

Qualifications?

  • Must be 18 years and older
  • No special educational or professional requirements; volunteers can be from any background or field, including parents, college students, teachers, customer services… anyone at all with the desire to change lives
  • It is not necessary to have a tech background, but a willingness to learn along with Club members

Facilitators help to guide Club girls through the lessons and help to build relationships among their fellow Club-mates, learn good citizenship, and use their new computing skills to help their communities. Find out more about the mission of Girls Who Code on the official website.

Those wishing to sign up may do so by filling in the Facilitator Application using the Club Code VI728.

For more information, contact Girls Who Club Virgin Islands Lead Facilitator Aimee Sanchez at (340) 677-3009 or via email.
