"Girls For Technology has had a wonderful impact on my daughter both academically and socially. Her grades have improved and her willingness to learn new things within the program. GFT has built her confidence a lot, and she is more open to talk and share her thoughts. My daughter is always looking forward to being with such a positive group of people."
