Girl Develop It is a nonprofit organization that exists to provide affordable and accessible programs to women who want to learn software and web development through in-person, hands-on instruction.
Our vision is to create a network of empowered women who feel confident in their abilities to code and build web and mobile applications. By teaching women across the country from diverse backgrounds to learn software development, we can help women improve their careers, gain confidence in their everyday lives and change the world.
Thank you for supporting Girl Develop It on our mission to make software development easy, affordable and accessible to all women. Your contribution helps us expand our mission to create great programs and opportunities for women learning to code.
