Yes, TALK is bringing its board members to teach classes found on your home computer or laptop this summer from the TechGirlz curricula. We are hoping to have 30 students each class — designed for middle school age girls. Let’s have some fun! Moms and Dads can buddy up with their daughter or an older sibling or let a neighborhood middle school friend come hang out for these hourly sessions. Totally free. Registration is on Eventbrite, so find the class your tween is interested in, and sign her up today!
Our local TALK partner in this summer work in Louisville is Louisville Central Community Center (LCCC). TALK has worked with TechGirlz curricula for three years.
