Dear Santa Teresa High School,


I hope all is well! My name is Jackson Thomas and I am a Community Partner Manager at Girls Who Code. I'm reaching out to tell you about our Summer Immersion Program, which is a free 7 week programs for current 10th and 11th grade girls (rising juniors and seniors) to learn coding and get exposure to tech jobs. Applications for summer 2018 are now open! We have an early deadline of February 16, and the final application deadline is March 16.


In the Summer Immersion Program, which is hosted by major tech companies, including Facebook, Twitter and Adobe, your students will learn about:

  • Tech Companies -- They’ll meet female engineers and get an inside look at technical roles in the world’s top companies.

  • Project-based learning -- They’ll learn computer science through real-world projects in art and storytelling, robotics, video games, websites, apps and more!

  • Sisterhood -- They’ll work in teams and make lifelong friendships with a supportive and diverse community of thousands of girls.


In addition to providing a free program, Girls Who Code provides summer stipends of up to $1000 to cover transportation and living costs for Summer Immersion Program students who qualify!


We would love to explore a community partnership with your school to help encourage your students to apply for the Summer Immersion Program. Girls Who Code works with community partners to provide additional outreach and support eligible students through the application process and accepted students through the onboarding process. Eligible students affiliated with Girls Who Code’s official community partners receive priority consideration for placement in our Summer Immersion Program.

Here is an overview of a Summer Immersion Program Community Partnership including the benefits and expectations associated with a partnership. There is also a link to a brief form to complete in order to establish our partnership for the Summer Immersion Program and ensure your school is listed on our student application.


Do you have 15-30 minutes this week or next to discuss how we could encourage your students to apply for this program? If so, I’d love to find time to chat which aligns with your schedule. Please feel free to schedule me for a call using this link, which indicates my daily availability.
