We are hoping to have 30 students each class — designed for middle school age girls, but boys are welcome as well. Let’s have some fun! Moms and Dads can buddy up with their child or an older sibling or let a neighborhood middle school friend come hang out for these hourly sessions. Totally free. Registration is on Eventbrite, so find the class your tween is interested in, and sign him or her up today!

We support diversity and inclusion in all our tech events and trainings and have since our inception. We know that tech is overrepresented in some circles and underrepresented in others, and we are working for more access to tech training and workforce development for all ages and in all communities. 

TALK’s mission is to build knowledge-sharing and skills development for advancement throughout our region. As always, we continue to provide programming that allows for access to professional development for everyone.

We are excited to announce virtual access to our summer TechGirlz lineup and our June 12th TALK CyberSecurity Summit , both free and coming up! Join with us to lift the conversation around how technology can make a difference in our communities.
