Get Started

We have exciting program updates!

This season we are proud to introduce a new Beginner Division, which will be open to girls ages 8-12, and to introduce a new technology option—teams will now have the choice of developing an AI-powered prototype or a mobile app prototype as their submission project.

Join the movement.

We're girls, mentors, and educators working together to learn and apply technology skills to change the world.

Find your role with Technovation Girls

Learn to solve real-world problems with technology

As a Technovation Girls team, you will…

  • Identify a problem in your community that you want to solve with technology.
  • Learn to code and develop an AI-powered prototype or a mobile app prototype to solve that problem—you don't need to know how to code to participate!
  • Collaborate with peers and learn from industry mentors

Guide students through their Technovation Girls journey

As a Technovation Girls Mentor, you will

  • Recruit and supervise a team of girls as they create apps to solve community problems
  • Spend about 1 hour a week for 4 months helping your team develop their ideas
  • Network and share best practices with peers from Salesforce, Google, Cisco, Adobe, HSBC, GM, AT&T, & more

You do not need to be a technology professional, but you should be comfortable saying "I don't know, let's find out together." Learn more.

If you aren't able to make this time commitment, consider becoming a Judge, which is also a critical—but less time-intensive—role.

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.

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

Registration for judges will open in March 2022. Sign up to get an email notification when it opens.

As a Chapter Ambassador you will...

  • Support 7+ teams at multiple sites in your community
  • Spend 5+ hours a week to grow and support your Technovation Chapter (this may grow to 15 hours a week during peak season periods like submission)
  • Recruit participants and mentors
  • Organize events and regular meetings to work through the curriculum.

Technovation provides training, program curriculum, mentor recruitment support, marketing collateral and mini-grant opportunities. While experience leading youth STEM programs is beneficial, this is also a great opportunity if you or the organization you represent would like to start offering STEM opportunities to girls. Driven individuals may also volunteer as Chapter Ambassadors with great success!

As a Club Ambassador, you will...

  • Support at least 5 teams as they complete the program

Connect with your community

Our program is run in chapters and clubs 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 10+ teams across multiple sites (like schools, or community centers), while clubs support between 2 to 9 teams. Chapters are overseen by Chapter Ambassadors, while Clubs are supported by Club Ambassadors.

You can find your local Chapter or Club below, with information about your local leader. If you have questions, get in touch!

Any girl or young woman (ages 8-18) interested in Technovation Girls is eligible to participate.
We welcome all transgender people and also those who identify as non-binary or gender nonconforming and want to be part of a female-identified environment, including student participants. Read our full Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Statement.
