Mission Statement

Techbridge Girls excites, educates, and equips girls from low-income communities by delivering high quality STEM programming that empowers a girl to achieve economic mobility and better life chances.

About This Cause

Techbridge launched in 2000 as a program to expand the academic and career options for girls in science, technology, and engineering. Since our founding, we’ve worked with over 4,000 girls in grades 5-12 through our after-school and summer programs in the San Francisco Bay area. We believe every girl needs personal and consistent support to succeed, and to that aim we’ve created resources for educators, families, and role models who make up her support network.

Techbridge began as a program of the Chabot Space & Science Center in Oakland, California, founded with a grant from the National Science Foundation. In 2011, Techbridge spun off and now operates as a separate 501(c)(3) nonprofit. We continue on our path to increase the number of women and underrepresented minorities in science, technology, and engineering. Our after-school programs are in place at schools spanning three Bay Area school districts. We provide training to school districts and partners to build capacity for STEM teaching in after-school and summer programs. In addition, we work with 17 Girl Scout councils across the nation through our Girls Go Techbridge partnership.
