Hope and opportunity are life-changing gifts
The HYPE Leadership Academy is a yearlong internship placement program that equips high school students with workforce-ready skills for 21st-century opportunities.
We collaborate with corporate partners to teach relevant tech skills, provide leadership training and development, and ultimately connect HYPE Scholars in career-developing internships.
Students who successfully complete the program will be eligible to apply and interview for internships with companies of their interest.
Representation truly does matter
The HYPE Summer Coding Camps offer middle or high school students a fun, interactive day camp experience where they learn computer skills and the basics of coding
Our affordable and accessible summer coding camps provide expert instruction from Women in Tech (WIT) guest speakers and professionals.
We nurture the skills of leadership and communication
The HYPE International Experience
HYPE's signature International Experience gives participants a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to travel abroad and teach coding skills to youth in an international developing country or urban city center.
Research shows that girls want to solve real-world problems and are drawn to service-oriented careers from a young age, but not STEM. Our fully-funded 1-week trips abroad allow HYPE alumnae to teach coding workshops to kids in developing countries, allowing them to put into practice what they have learned in the HYPE Project while connecting STEM fields to passion, purpose, and solving real-world problems.
HYPE organizes multiple International Experiences per year, hosting up to 20 girls for each experience. This train-the-trainer model allows participants to go from being a student to a teacher and gain critical leadership skills that prepare them for future careers in tech, all while gaining a global perspective with exposure to new countries, cultures, and ways of life.
We'll share more information about The HYPE International Experience in the futue, so stay tuned!!!
