Volunteer Opportunities with TechGirlz

Posted by TechGirlz on November 27, 2018

TechGirlz is a Philadelphia-based 501(c)3 nonprofit inspires middle school girls to explore the possibilities of technology to empower their future careers. Founder Tracey Welson-Rossman notes that ‘girls are self-selecting out of technology around ninth grade’, so all of TechGirlz workshops and events are targeted towards engaging girls in grades 6, 7, & 8.

All volunteers must have completed background clearances on file with TechGirlz before committing to a volunteer opportunity.
