Tech Age Girls
Tech Age Girls (TAG) is an intensive training, mentoring, and networking program that models for society how young female leaders can confidently use their technology expertise and leadership skills to contribute to their community’s development.
TAG is structured into three stages of basic professional skills and leadership development, with select participants advancing to subsequent stages of more advanced skills building. This ensures that a broad group of young women build their employability skills, while top performers receive targeted, advanced training and leadership opportunities. Through the program, participants implement community projects to tackle local challenges, provide training to other youth, and engage with local officials to discuss the issues that matter to them most.
Originally developed by IREX, Tech Age Girls has reached over 2,000 participants across 11 countries. Implemented by READ, TAG has reached 500 rising leaders in Nepal and 158 in India in 14 communities.
