About us

LITAS For Girls is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that aims to inspire middle school girls to pursue careers in STEM. We don't just teach girls to code-- we teach them to code with a purpose. LITAS aims to mold girls to be the next generation of leaders in CS+STEM, with both the creativity to come up with game-changing ideas and the skills to implement them. By teaching teamwork, brainstorming, and presentation skills alongside computer science, the goal of the program is to build confidence in girls and give them the tools to use computer science to build something to better the world. LITAS’s curriculum is designed to reduce the dropout rate of girls in computer science by showing our participants the real-world impact they can have through their code. LITAS also puts on events where girls present their coding projects to industry leaders in technology, gaining mentorship and networking opportunities.
