Building a mighty network is one that involves women; a phenomenal gender that sets passion and drive to fuel any course.
MPlace Girls, named as a nod to MakersPlace is a sub-foundation of this company targeted at young girls who have a strong passion for technology but with less formal programming training. The aim is to empower young girls with technological skills to dominate the future industry, a place where women are the tech-savvies!
MPlace Girls, as a subset of MakersPlace, offers a holistic avenue with a year-long training program that includes classroom instruction in cutting-edge web technologies, boot camps, and competitions. These activities hone the creative abilities of young girls while learning the most up-to-date development skills from our STEAM mentors. Furthermore, it is an interactive and supportive community of guidance and mentorship that will increase the minority’s growth in the technological industry.
To date, MPlace Girls holds six girls, two of which are mentors, and we are ready to add more young girls to promote the company innovatively. We believe that the future work for women is not an office space but far beyond.
MPlace Girls is a non-profit organization that seeks to be a holistic avenue to shape the girl child’s creative ability, incorporating in them the 4Cs, which is communication, collaboration, creativity and critical thinking together with the technical knowledge to add that extra confidence boost in their social skills.
We offer certification courses, extensive online educational tools, and hands-on social impact mission experience, all designed to ensure that each student has mastered the essential skills required for them in the area of STEAM.
