What Club Members Are Saying
Being a teen club member has given me the chance to meet new people who share similar interests and open doors to different opportunities. Teen club has opened my mind to the world of technology, and it teaches girls how to hack problems so we can create our own start-ups in the future. The workshops are presented in a fun, teen-friendly way, and overall the environment of Teen Club is friendly and engaging. This has helped me realize my potential of a high-level career in business and technology. The experiences, learning, and friendships in teen club can never be attained in school. Teen Club will help kick-start your career in STEAM fields, networking with mentors and peer and much more!
With all of my experience with Ladies Learning Code and Teen Club I can honestly say that I’ve seen and been affected by this positive change first hand. My involvement with Ladies Learning Code has inspired me to not only just learn code but I want to pursue a higher education and a career in computer science and entrepreneurship. Teen Club instilled this in me specifically after just a few workshops where we covered coding, entrepreneurship and business concepts that we were never taught in school.
"I never knew what a hackathon was until I experienced it at Ladies Learning Code Teen Club's first hackathon and there was so many things that I loved about it! I learnt new thinking methods to help me develop my ideas. I learnt various problems that people face which I never knew. The mentors were very helpful and supportive to everyone. I even made awesome new friends! Overall, this experience made me learn new things and build new relationships in such a short period. I can't wait for the next one!"
"Teen Club goes far beyond just digital literacy. Being a member of the club has exposed me to a world that I would have never seen had I stayed inside all day to study. I've learned in-depth coding, visited Cisco and Twitter Canada HQ, been invited to the Google Go North Conference, and learned valuable professional skills.
I've also learned about the tech industry, startup culture, and its gender gap. As an advocate for Women in STEAM, Teen Club is a place where I can further my knowledge on the issue, and take steps toward fixing it.
Because of Teen Club, tech has become my biggest passion, and nothing will stop me from becoming a C-level executive in the industry"
I joined Teen Club in 2015 as part of the pilot program. There, I met incredibly bright and welcoming young ladies with whom I shared many interests. We I still keep in touch outside with them outside of Teen Club today - which I think is amazing because it proves how much of an impression they had on me.
Each field trip we go on is worthwhile. From Google to Cisco, each trip has provided a different learning experience and left an impression on me.
Teen Club gave me an advantage for my future and I’m so thankful for having had the opportunity to be in the program.
"Teen club, has opened up many great opportunities, for me and other high school girls who share interests in the tech field. Recently, Teen Club has been attending some very interesting conferences, to get us, teens, exposed to the outside world. Not only that, but I love all the coding sessions and the sessions we hold to help us improve our skills at these events. After being exposed to all of this, I have come to realize that the tech industry is our future and it is important that more teens get involved. I am so grateful that ladies learning code offers this great opportunities to teens.
