Join the movement.
We're girls, mentors, and educators working together to create real solutions to problems in our communities—now, not later.
We're using technology entrepreneurship to shape a better world—and to become community leaders.
Are you ready to join us?
Technovation Girls students create solutions to community problems using technology.
As a student you will:
- Identify a problem that matters to your community
- Build a mobile app or AI prototype that solves the problem, and develop other skills along the way!
- Collaborate with peers and learn from industry mentors
Technovation Girls mentors guide the next generation of global problem-solvers.
As a mentor you will:
- Support one or more teams as they learn about coding, AI, and real-world problem-solving
- Develop skills while inspiring girls to lead and make change
- Network and share best practices with peers from Salesforce, Google, Cisco, Adobe, HSBC, GM, AT&T, & more
Give girls around the world feedback on their tech projects
As a Technovation Girls Judge, you will...
- Commit 3 hours to reviewing submissions, helping to select 10 finalist teams who will pitch their ideas at our global event
- Complete a 30 minute training and learn what problems girls around the world care deeply about
- Provide feedback to help girls continue learning
Ambassadors run Technovation Girls in their local communities and support girls to tap into their potential as leaders and technology entrepreneurs.
There are a few different kind of Ambassador opportunities—we'll help you find the one that fits your experience, needs, and time availability. All Ambassador opportunities require an application process.
- Chapter Ambassadors support 7+ teams at multiple sites in their community, host events and regular meetings, and recruit girls and mentors and support them to complete the program. This is a 5 to 15-hour a week commitment
- Club Ambassadors support at least 5 teams, often at one site (like a school or after school program), recruit girls, and support them to complete the program. This is a 5-hour a week commitment.
- Student Ambassadors recruit girls through online or in-person events, help them get started, and keep them motivated to complete the program. This opportunity is only available to Technovation Girls Alumnae who have completed at least one season of the program and are 13-20 years of age.
Support and encourage your daughter on her technology entrepreneurship journey
As a Technovation Girls parent, you will...
- Support your daughter and her teammates!
- Provide additional encouragement and help—like a safe space for your daughter and her team to work, connect teams with experts from your professional network, or help talk through challenges they're encountering.
If you have the time and interest, you can create a mentor account and become an official mentor for your daughter's team.

Connect with your community
Our program is run in chapters, clubs, and groups around the world! Both Chapters and Clubs provide a way for students from a school or a local organization to meet and work together towards completing their project. However, there are a few differences: Chapters are bigger than clubs — chapters support 7+ teams across multiple sites (like schools, or community centers), while clubs support between 2-5 teams. Chapters are overseen by Chapter Ambassadors, while Clubs are supported by Club Ambassadors. Student Ambassadors lead Groups.
You can find your local Chapter or Club below, with information about your local leader. If you have questions, get in touch!
