Hi CSTA Central NJ, , 

My name is Eve Balick, I am a Regional Partnership Coordinator at Girls Who Code, a national non-profit dedicated to closing the gender gap in technology. I am currently working to expand our programs in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Prior to joining staff, I started a Club in Kinnelon, NJ. I'm reaching out to see if any CSTA members might be interested in starting a Girls Who Code Club in your community.

Currently, less than a quarter of computing jobs are held by women, and that number is declining. Our organization is working to reverse the decline. Last year, we reached 40,000 girls in all 50 states and we hope to reach 100,000 by the end of 2018 through our Clubs Program. We would love to work with you to increase the number of Clubs in New Jersey and position our state as a leader in growing computer science education and reaching girls who are historically underrepresented in computer science. Last year we started 100 new Clubs in NJ and we hope for many more this year.

Our Clubs are free after-school programs for 3-12th grade girls to use computer science to impact their community and join our sisterhood of supportive peers and role models. They can be hosted in schools, universities, libraries, community centers, faith-based organizations, or nonprofits. There's ZERO fee to start a Club. 

Please let me know if you would like me to send more information or check out our website. Please also feel free to forward my email to your colleagues in your community who might be interested as well. I look forward to hearing from you.
