The GirlCode Gap Semester is designed for a group of self-directed, independent women who want to learn to code and be immersed in a growing startup. Explore yourself, New York, computer science, and alternative education.
Why Learn to Code?
Coding allows you to develop critical thinking and problem solving skills to break down difficult challenges into logical and actionable steps. After completing the GirlCode Program, you could land a junior software engineering role and make upwards of $70K, forge your path in the world of alternative education, start your own company, or have a clear sense of what you want to study in college.
It’s 2016 and only 18% of software engineers are women. The GirlCode Program is designed to change that statistic and empower a community of passionate women to use technology to solve big problems in the world.
