Our first official 10,000 Girls4Girls Coding “Plus” Camp empowered teen girls by teaching them to code, adopt a tech-forward mindset, and develop vital leadership skills! Through our “train the trainer” model, Summer Campers left empowered to volunteer to train girls in their community to code, too.
The focus of our G4G Coding “Plus” programs is: Digital Literacies, Leadership Development, University & Pre-Career Preparation, Networking Opportunities. Our Camp brought together a wide variety of speakers for a crash course in leadership 101! It also introduced students to a world of coding – the basic literacy of the digital age and prerequisite for jobs of the future. Improving computational, communication, and problem-solving skills, while fostering creativity and self-confidence, helps prepare students to enter the future as digital leaders!
Thanks to our 20 Coding Explorer Program graduates and volunteers from International Christian School (ICS), Chinese International School (CIS), Precious Blood Secondary School (PBSS), Cheltenham Ladies’ College (CLC) and other channels who engaged in meaningful ways with our F.2 and F.3 Campers to uplift and empower them to tap into all their passions! Special thanks to Ms. Phyllis Lee, Ms. Ceci Lau, Mr. Julian Cheng, Ms. Fiona O, Ms. Secy Cheung and Ms. Anushka Purohit for serving as guest speakers encouraging all students to lead!
