About Girl Ambassador Program

The Girl Ambassador Program (GAP) is a 21st-century workforce development program for Black girls and other girls of color that teaches hybrid skills and prepares them for better-paying jobs in technology and professional careers. GAP is a four-year, tiered approach that supports paced learning and development, where certified instructors work with girls based on their individual software and hardware proficiencies and life experiences. Also, girls are introduced to thought leaders and subject matter experts on job readiness, leadership, networking and financial literacy tools that will give them a head start to professional and entrepreneurial career pathways.
 
Most importantly, GAP is intentional about affirming our girls as well as giving them professional skills. GAP builds self-esteem and self-efficacy by ensuring positive images of Black girls are in abundance. This affirms that each participant can be their best, culturally authentic selves and see themselves in our diverse team of instructors and guest speakers. Saturday sessions will cover a variety of hybrid skills, both hard and soft skills, ranging from coding to resume building. Not only do we offer remote classroom learning, we also cultivate experiences that encourage a bond of sisterhood through our field trips and excursions. At the end of the program, each girl will walk away with a new network of peers, new skills, experiences she will take with her for the rest of her life, and an opportunity to have real-world work experience in the summer.
 
Hiring partner applications open November 15th and close April 20th.
