Description
G.E.T. Loud is an annual one-day empowerment event for girls in 5th-8th grades and their parents aimed to break down barriers of access to programming, by including targeted attendance from girls in underserved neighborhoods.

Spring 2020 will be our 3rd annual G.E.T. Loud (Girls Empowered Together) Event to help young girls cultivate a strong sense of self. The event is geared to encourage girls to learn that extra skill or discover an interest that will positively impact their future as they become leaders and women. Previous events included a robotics lab, coding workshop, internet safety seminar, community engagement seminar by City Councilwoman Angelique Ashby, basketball clinic by the Sacramento Kings, and an entrepreneurship discussion with a 13 year-old female business owner. In 2020, we look forward to engaging even more girls and parents, expanding the attendance to 300, and focusing on four areas: Heart, Head, Hands, and Imagination.
