Support the next generation of Young Women in Computing (YWiC)
YWiC focuses on reaching students at the middle school level to spark their interest in technology fields and works on retaining these students by offering high school camps and clubs. These students are given the opportunity to participate in specialized activities like the summer programs, conferences, and competitions. In addition to working with students in the local public schools, the program also works to recruit and employ female computer science students offering mentoring and general support for NMSU’s Computer Science female undergraduates.
YWiC has directly impacted over 13,250 students and is rapidly growing. Our mission is to reach as many young women as possible while keeping our program free of charge. But the cost of project supplies, software licenses, lunches and computers or laptops adds up quickly. This is where we need your help. We believe in providing equal opportunity regardless of economic background and we can't do that without your support. Only 20% of the computing workforce is made up of women - join us in our effort to change that!
