Response to COVID-19

March 16, 2020

Given the unprecedented spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and school closures across the U.S., Techbridge Girls is following the direction of our local districts and has suspended all our after-school programming effective immediately. All EYH conferences that were originally scheduled to take place from March 17, 2020 through May 10, 2020 have now been canceled or postponed until after May 10.

Techbridge Girls is deeply committed to empowering girls from low-income communities to achieve economic mobility through high-quality STEM experiences. And we are equally committed to protecting the safety and well-being of our program participants, event attendees, and other community members.

Techbridge Girls is working quickly and diligently to formulate alternative program delivery options by planning at-home STEM activities for our girls, curating resources for families, and creating opportunities for our girls to develop their own civic engagement and leadership skills in response to COVID-19.

Additionally, please note that we have rescheduled our 20th Anniversary Gala (originally scheduled for May 14, 2020) to be held on Wednesday, September 23, 2020 at the Four Seasons in San Francisco, CA. We have also postponed our annual “She Persisted: Celebrating Changemakers” fundraiser in Seattle until fall 2020. Our annual Showcase events in Washington, D.C., Oakland, CA, and Seattle, WA will be rescheduled or reimagined.

We will keep you updated on any further actions that we may take, and we will add resources and information to this webpage on an ongoing basis.

Thank you for your continued support as we navigate through these challenging circumstances.
