Subject: Re: Girls Who Code partnership opportunity: prepare your students for 21st century careers!

 

Dear Atlantic Provinces Library Association,
 

I am following up to discuss a potential partnership with Girls Who Code to promote our Clubs program to educators in your network. Our Clubs are FREE after-school programs designed to to prepare girls ages 13-18 for 21st century careers in technology. In Clubs, girls engage in fun and engaging online coding tutorials, build community through interactive activities, learn about inspiring role models in tech, and work together to design solutions to real-world problems facing their communities. Clubs are designed to be run by anyone, regardless of experience with computer science. This Clubs Overview flyer includes all program details.

 

Girls Who Code alumni major in computer science and related fields at a

rate 15 times higher than the U.S. national average!

 

I would love to connect with you to discuss how we can spread the word about our programs across your network. Are you available for a 10-15 minute phone call to discuss further? If so, please use this link to schedule a call with me.

Dear Atlantic Provinces Library Association,

 

My name is Jackson Thomas and I am a Community Partner Manager at Girls Who Code, a national nonprofit organization based in the U.S. dedicated to closing the gender gap in technology. I’m reaching out to see if you might be interested in partnering to bring our FREE after-school Clubs programs to the communities you serve.

 

For context, Girls Who Code has already partnered with State Departments of Education, school districts, library systems, and universities in the U.S. to teach coding to over 90,000 girls in the last six years.

 

We are so excited to expand our programs to Canada!

 

Today, less than 27% of computing jobs in Canada are held by women and that number is declining. These numbers are especially concerning because in Canada—like in the U.S.—STEM-related jobs are some of the fastest growing and highest paying in the economy. At Girls Who Code, we created our programs to address the gender gap in technology.

 

Girls Who Code Clubs are FREE after-school programs that are designed to get girls ages 13-18 excited about computer science. In Clubs, girls engage in fun and engaging online coding tutorials, build community through interactive activities, learn about inspiring role models in tech, and work together to design solutions to real-world problems facing their communities. Clubs are designed to be run by anyone, regardless of experience with computer science. This Clubs Overview flyer includes all program details.

 

I would love to connect with you about partnering to launch Clubs for girls throughout the communities you serve. Are you or a member of your staff available for a 15 minute phone call over the next few weeks? If you’d like to discuss further, please feel free to schedule me for a call using this link, which indicates my daily availability.

 

Please let me know if you have any questions. In the meantime, feel free to browse the Girls Who Code website to learn more about our organization and Clubs program.

 

I look forward to connecting soon.


Best,

Jackson
