What We Do
At the Dottie Rose Foundation we encourage, support and educate girls who have an interest in technology and want to learn how it can be used to enhance their learning and future careers. Our camps demonstrate that most future career paths will benefit from developing a wide range of increasingly important technology and software skills. We will accomplish this through mastering computational thinking, boosting self confidence and creating new possibilities for each girl.
Our goal is to provide 100% of scholarships to girls for our summer programming by 2022. That is ambitious! In order to do that we need community support to provide scholarship funding and partnership with our summer programming. We are seeking both funding and a thought partnership to support and create meaningful experiences in the field of technology and computer science for our girls. We want to impact 160 girls this summer. This would be double our number from 2020. Scaling our Reach - We are looking for partners to support our ability to reach and serve more girls through online programming and using cutting edge technology. In addition providing opportunities for girls from across our network to come together for learning in a summit. We want to impact 400 girls this year. That is double from 2020.
BONUS GOOD: Your donation also creates new jobs, since we need to hire more online teachers, and helps us maintain our partnerships with other Charlotte businesses, organizations and nonprofits.
