Our Mission

Sisterhood Recoded’s mission is to inspire young women to pursue becoming their best selves. This leading-edge program introduces young women to the ever-growing field of technology using state-of-the-art applications. Your daughter’s participation will not only expose her to STEM education, but also introduce women who revolutionized computer science.

Your daughter may end up not being interested in a technology related career. That's absolutely fine, we just want her to have the chance to discover that rather than be limited in her choices by the classes offered at her schools.

What is Sisterhood ReCoded?

Sisterhood ReCoded helps middle-school girls who express interest in learning more about Information Technology and Computer Science by hosting non-residential programs. These various programs educate young women how to design and develop their own applications with support and collaboration of peers and adult leadership.

Why is this important?

The technology field is exponentially growing, demanding the need for the professionals to fill vacant positions. Meanwhile, there is an extensive lack of diversity and a shortage of Computer Science graduates to qualify for these positions.

Your daughter's participation in any Sisterhood ReCoded program(s) will not only boost her self-confidence, but also a sense of empowerment for learning valuable skills! While she is supported by a network of peers and professionals, she can freely explore or develop existing skills such as critical thinking, problem solving, application of logic, working in teams, and enhance leadership skills.

Our nation needs more diversity in Computer Science positions. For those young women who take to the field, this need represents an opportunity into well-paying career opportunities that can take them anywhere in the country.

What happens with a program?

Your daughters will be taught by female college students who are majoring in Computer Science. These students will provide patient instruction as well as positive role models for what women can achieve.

Part of the program will be to introduce your daughter to professional women who are working in technology fields, to build a network of support to help foster your daughter's interest in Computer Science.

What are the benefits of participating?

The 6 core beliefs of Sisterhood ReCoded are Self-Efficacy, Empowerment, Passion, Innovation, Collaboration, and Leadership. The confidence your daughter will gain through this program will be invaluable while she is introduced to a network of peers with the same passions within STEM. With affiliation in a network and exposure to coding under professionals and collaboration with peers, this will provide a sense of self-efficacy by designing and developing her own functioning program, while allowing her to see the potential of pursuing computer science. Not only will your daughter obtain the momentum and support to continue coding throughout her academic years, but concurrently instill confidence to major in a STEM based degree.

Is this really free?

Yes! Our sponsors pay for the camp, allowing us to provide it to your daughter for no cost to you. We want no barriers between your daughter and her discovering if technology is the field for her.
