Sara Neiman started as Chicago Outreach Coordinator for TechGirlz this year. Sara taught on the West Side of Chicago for four years while teaching social studies and writing. She then continued to teach middle school students in the Chicago land area with a predominate focus on civic engagement for the next three years. On top of teaching, Sara has coached track, volleyball, basketball (boys and girls), and was the athletic director. She realized that throughout teaching, her true passion was to help others become successful and engaged citizens of the modern world.
TechGirlz is a program of Creating IT-Futures that facilitates free, engaged tech workshops for middle school girls.TechGirlz is accomplishing its mission through the creation of free, fun, interactive “TechShopz” led by industry professionals, leaders, and students. The TechGirlz mission is to inspire middle school girls to explore the possibilities of technology to empower their future careers. We share our free workshop curriculum with companies, organizations, schools and community groups so they can inspire girls around the world with technology.
Our vision is to create a world where girls have a lifelong passion and confidence in their use of technology throughout their careers.
