Fully Funded Leadership Training from TechGirls for Female Students in the US

TechGirls invites young girls to apply for 8 months of leadership training and join an alumni network of TechWomen and TechGirls that will support them as they plan their higher education, careers, and community-based projects. Your U.S. program begins with group international travel with your fellow participants from your country with a flight escort. Meeting all the other young women selected from across your region is the first inspiring element to the program. Legacy International staff provides 24-hour supervision and a safe and secure environment.

During the program, each leader develops an action plan to transfer skills and knowledge back home. Projects have included – starting a Tech Club at school, offering training to classmates, helping local businesses by designing a website, creating an online dialogue forum with friends, blogging, organizing tech career fairs at their school.
