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.

IMPACT OF COVID-19 - SPECIFIC NEEDS:

Kids (especially girls) need engaging opportunities to learn computer science now more than ever. Our online workshops give kids the chance to connect with others, learn about new technology and potentially become future tech leaders! Learn more about our virtual workshops. Learn more about these virtual workshops here: https://dottierosefoundation.org/workshops/

A financial donation will give us the ability to pivot to a complete online platform for our computer science workshops and summer camps for 3 months.

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.

Interesting Info

We have educated over 200 girls in the field of computer science and technology
In 1995, 37% of computer scientists were women. Today, it’s only 24%. If we do nothing, in ten years the number of women in computing will decrease to just 22%.
Our goal in the next year is host 8 camps and be able to have 4 schloraships per camp for girls who couldn't afford to normally go to a camp.
