ThoughtWorks & Black Girls Code - Volunteers and Help with Sponsorship is Needed

ThoughtWorks is co-sponsoring a Black Girls Code event and we need your help by sponsoring 20 – 30 girls. The event cost $37 per girl, so we really wanted to help offset that cost. We are also looking for volunteers to help with this event. For additional information about volunteering please contact Jesus Salazar - [masked] .

If you would like to sponsor a young lady please click on this link:

BlackGirlsCODE is excited to host our first workshop in Dallas on Saturday, April 19th, 2014 at University of Texas at Dallas.

Join us for Build a Webpage in a Day Dallas!

This workshop will teach participants to build their own unique webpage in one day using fun games and activities to introduce HTML, CSS, and basic web structure. 

All BGC workshops are geared towards introducing participants to the technological universe and encouraging them to pursue careers as Tech Creators and Entrepreneurs. This event is intended for girls ages 7-17.
Check-in will begin at 9:00AM, and the workshop will start promptly at 10:00AM. Participants do not need to bring their own computers. Access will be provided to a computer workstation during the workshop. Lunch will also be provided.
Space is limited. So sign up soon to secure your spot! Once you register for this event please complete the online student profile forms and emergency contact forms which can be found at this link on our website: Please bring signed copies of these forms to the event. Those girls who have not checked in by 9:45AM will risk losing their seats.
Please contact BlackGirlsCODE at [masked] if you have further questions regarding your sign-up or order. 
Imagine. Build. Create.

    I met a lot of cool people from Blacks In Technology and ThoughtWorks volunteering at the Black Girls Code event. The girls were terrific. They had great ideas and they brought their curiosity with them. It was so much fun and a very positive environment.

    We are half way through the session and the girls are having a fantastic time. They just completed their first web pages after building their own wire frames. The pages include graphics and videos of their favorite interests and ideas Absolutely awesome experience for all!! The attendance is impressive! Absolute thumbs up!!!
