HYPE is a non-profit organization that was founded with a mission to educate, equip, and empower. We provide mentoring, tech education, and international exposure to offer hope and opportunity for minority and low-income girls - both locally and internationally.
HYPE workshops, coding camps, and International Experiences are centered around commitment to the individual that we serve - and at the individual level of granularity. We are closely connected to all of our program participants, understanding their needs and playing a significant role in their leadership development. Our teaching assistants are current program participants and/or HYPE alumni who have learned the importance of servant leadership and giving back under HYPE's tutelage. They embody what it looks like to live a life of significance while growing in leadership and bringing the HYPE Experience full circle!
We believe that support for our girls should continue beyond primary school, which is why, this year, we are pioneering a college scholarship to support the higher education of our tech leaders of tomorrow.
What we've been able to provide tangibly has varied and developed greatly over the past years, but to be able to offer actual college support through our HYPE Future of Tech Scholarship is a literal dream come true!
The global tech industry is growing, and we need female leaders at the forefront of this innovation. With your help and support during our 2020 Giving Tuesday campaign, we plan to raise $10,000 to award four $2500 scholarships to underrepresented female students intending to major in tech-related fields such as computer science and engineering.
We greatly appreciate your contribution and support in making these scholarships possible!
