Double your donation!

Our Board and Founder have created a giving challenge starting on #GivingTuesday. If we can raise $15,000 from donors like you, your donation will be matched dollar for dollar - that means we will receive $30,000 for STEM programming for girls!

Your donation goes directly to help a girl participate in hands-on making and computer science programs that inspire them to be creators of technology. 

 

 

DIY Girls and the Eva Longoria Foundation will train 40 STEM professionals to lead hands-on coding workshops for 200 girls in underserved Los Angeles communities in order to help them learn basic CS concepts, explore potential career opportunities, and encourage them to continue doing STEM-related activities going forward.

About


DIY (“Do-It-Yourself”) Girls’ mission is to increase girls’ interest and success in technology, engineering and making through innovative educational experiences and mentor relationships. We're a supportive community for girls driven by an interest in creating and building with technology.

DIY Girls uses a three-pronged program approach that integrates engagement, capacity building, and continuity to ensure girls’ success. We offer after-school and summer programs that provide hands-on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) experiences for girls. Girls learn technical skills and apply them by creating their own creative projects and inventions.

DIY Girls has reached over 1200 girls in Los Angeles since 2012.

Why it matters


SCROLL DOWN

Why it matters


THE PROBLEM STARTS EARLY

Less than 15% of girls show an interest in STEAM at the critical ages between 4th-8th grade.

 

… AND ONLY GETS WORSE

Women currently represent less than 25% of the STEAM workforce. Latinas represent only 2% of employed scientists and engineers.

 

We do what we do in order to change the way girls perceive tech careers. We believe that creating with tech builds the confidence needed to make anything possible. We want DIY girls to apply the technical skills they learn to projects they love.
