Digital Girl, Inc. is a nonprofit dedicated to empowering our communities’ underserved youth, especially girls, to pursue interests in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) with an emphasis on technology and computer science. We have daily after-school programs at schools in Brooklyn and Manhattan in addition to weekend workshops. Volunteers commit to about two hours per week for the after-school programs, and with no recurring commitment in the weekend workshops.
