In 2018, Girls Code the World was funded by an anonymous donation to The Pennington School’s Applied Science Program. In 2019, Girls Code the World was funded by Drexel University’s CCI Program. In 2020, Mina and Sydney were accepted into Happy Valley LaunchBox’s Summer Founder’s Program, a program that provides a grant to startups, entrepreneurial pursuits, and nonprofits to develop their business or organization.
To date, Girls Code the World has reached dozens of girls in the Central New Jersey area. Through the 2020 Summer Founders Program, we are looking to expand our program in many ways including:
- Reaching a larger audience of young girls and more schools
- Creating variations of our curriculum that are catered to specific schools Working with a virtual platform to reach girls remotely
- Developing a mentorship program with high school and college girls so they can implement our curriculum in their own communities
- Hosting conferences that center around female leadership in STEM
