Year-Round Workshops for Girls

Scroll down for the current list of workshops

Tech Arts for Girls turns 20 years old this year. The program began with a grant of two computers to Squeaky Wheel in 1999 to allow young women access to computer arts in an effort to close the gender gap in computer and technology fields. 20 years later we are still carrying on this effort to ensure we at Squeaky Wheel keep fighting the good fight to continue to close this gap.

TechARTS for Girls (est. 1999) is a community action project that encourages girls from the city of Buffalo and Erie County to receive an affordable hands-on education in computers, technology and media literacy for young women 10 – 16. Classes take place on Saturdays from 10am – 1pm.

For the current schedule, see below.

Registration must occur at least three days prior to the start date of workshop. Cancellations must take place one week before to receive a refund. No walk-ins accepted. Scholarships are available based on need.
