Girls Who Code

Chillicothe Public Library is a host site for Girls Who Code, a free club for girls, grades 3rd-5th and 6th-12th, to learn how to program.

Girls Who Code is a nonprofit organization which aims to support and increase the number of women in computer science by equipping young women with the necessary computing skills to pursue 21st century opportunities.

Girls Who Code Club meets once a week to work on a collaborative project that addresses a real world problem in the community.

We are currently looking for a facilitator who will act as the supervisor for the Girls Who Code Club. NO technical experience is required. All the materials and resources will be provided.

If you are interested in becoming our Girls Who Code facilitator, please email Miss Elise at
