Leap into Technology was formed in January of 2016 to solve a major, global issue:
girls were not involved in technology.
At the Ridgefield Library, high school girls successfully implemented a course which they named Leap Into Technology (but you already know that). They worked with a small group of middle school girls, who created outstanding projects beyond the likes anyone would have expected for beginners.
With time, their curriculum began to spread and grow across town, then state, then national borders, and the focus of the club grew to include facilitating mentorship and leadership among its members.
Leap Into Technology is an adaptive program, with various levels of curriculum that can be implemented based on the needs and experience of the girls using the program. To date, we have had more than 2,100 members worldwide in over 90 branches.
