TechGYRLS is a hallmark program of YWCA Lancaster, focused on empowering girls ages 9 to 14 to pursue STEM activities and careers. Women, and particularly women of color, are under-represented in high-paying jobs in the science, technology, engineering, and math fields. TechGYRLS boosts girls’ interest in these fields through after-school programs at elementary and middle schools across Lancaster County, and during the summer in a two-week day camp.

During YWCA Lancaster’s after-school TechGYRLS program, girls will build their own fairy garden and explore chemistry with DIY slime, and stress-balls!
