Empowering girls to explore career opportunities in science, engineering, arts/design, & math (STEAM)
Teen Girls in Technology (TGI Tech) is YWCA of Greater Atlanta’s STEAM initiative for girls. TGI Tech was established in 2006 to excite young girls about careers in science, technology, engineering, arts/design, and math through after-school instruction, college prep workshops, and field trip experiences. By helping our TGI Tech participants develop strong critical thinking and problem-solving skills, we hope to increase their interest, confidence, and competence in STEAM subjects and put them on a path to non-traditional careers in science and technology.

Did you know?
In 2009 and 2010, women comprised of less than 25% of participants in science, technology, engineering, and math programs. Furthermore, fewer than 1 in 10 employed scientists and engineers in the United States were women of color.
TGI Tech in Action
Through after-school workshops that meet several times a week, students work on various projects that include the Future Cities workshop, learning how to use Google Apps, and robotics. They also have a chance to meet with guest speakers who work in various STEAM professions.
Each year we provide our high school students with 50 hours of college prep, which includes monthly workshops and an annual college trip.
Some of the schools we have visited include: Auburn University, Bethune Cookman College, Duke University, North Carolina A&T University, North Carolina Central University, and Tuskegee University.
During our annual trip to the Kennedy Space Center, TGI Tech participants have a chance to learn about aerospace engineering and talk with NASA astronauts.
In partnership with Delta Airlines and the Organization of Black Aerospace Professionals (OBAP), TGI Tech has participated in the Delta Dream Flight program since 2010, visiting the Naval Air Museum in Pensacola, FL, the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, OH, and the National Air and Space Museum in Washington, DC.
