opens in a new windowTechGirls enables young women (ages 15-17) from around the world to participate in a summer program in the U.S.  TechGirls aims to “educate for employment,” empowering youths with the skills and vision needed to create vibrant futures. TechGirls also experience American culture during their four-week trip through Home Hospitality experiences, where U.S. households provide a glimpse into the life of Americans and their communities.

TechGirls have many opportunities to interact with Americans of diverse backgrounds, both in their homes and in their workplaces:

Opportunity – Homestays Saturday July 22, 2023 to Wednesday July 26, 2023. 

If you live in Austin TX, Chicago IL, Denver CO, Seattle WA, Detroit WI, or Cincinnati OH and are interested in cultivating a strong cross-cultural experience, please consider opening your home to our TechGirls!

American families have an impactful role in the overall experience of international guests. Through time spent with US families, our visitors come to understand U.S. cultural values and our diverse way of life. If you live in one of the eligible cities and would like to host  — Contact us.
