DigiGirlz Mentorship Program

DigiGirlz Mentorship Program is the largest movement of STEM for girls in Morocco, launched in 2017 by the U.S. Mission in Morocco and Association Anoual, designed to engage girls currently enrolled in high school, aged between 15 and 18 years old and interested in science and technology; and facilitate their avocation of STEM careers through mentoring and tutoring by connecting them with university students interested in the technology field where they work together to come up with a solution to one of the most urgent social problems in their community.


The TechWomen program brings emerging women leaders in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) from Africa, Central Asia, and the Middle East together with their professional American counterparts for a mentorship and exchange program. TechWomen provides participants access to networks, resources, and knowledge to empower them to reach their full potential. During the five-week program, participants engage in project-based mentorships at leading companies in the San Francisco Bay Area and Silicon Valley, participate in professional development workshops and networking events, and travel to Washington, D.C. for targeted meetings and special events to conclude the program.


TechGirls is an international summer exchange program designed to empower and inspire young women from around the world to pursue careers in science and technology. The core of the program is a 25-day experience in the United States in partnership with Virginia Tech, a public research university. The TechGirls programming yields a multiplier effect as participants return home to educate their peers and create community-based projects. TechGirls is packed with skill-development workshops and interactions with America’s most innovative tech professionals as well as 40 hours of study at a Tech Camp with our partner the Center for Enhancement in Engineering Diversity at Virginia Tech.  The TechGirls program offers a rich cultural immersion experience, improves the participant’s ability to enter tech fields, and encourages them to pursue higher education in fields where women are underrepresented.
