Whether you're new to computing or looking to expand your existing skills, Girls Who Code at Barbara Goleman has a program for you.

Girls Who Code is an extracurricular club for high school girls that teaches participants about computer science in a fun and safe environment!  The club serves as a safe place for girls to spend time together, learning about computer science and building their confidence.  Clubs provides participants with a sisterhood of supportive peers and role models, and an opportunity to use their skills to positively impact their community.
