The Digital Youth Network’s Digital Youth Divas program supports middle-school girls in developing STEM identities by creating face-to-face and online spaces where girls work together to design, create, and re-imagine everyday artifacts (jewelry, hair accessories, music), activities (dancing and talking to friends), and spaces using techniques including design, circuitry, coding and fabrication.

Digital Youth Divas engage adolescent girls in a range of activities (e.g., STEM curriculum, narrative challenges, and social networking) in order to achieve the following three objectives:
- Mentors: Mentors facilitate the creative learning process for our students. Each mentor is trained with a focus on the Divas curriculum, projects, and community building.
- Schools: Schools interested in integrating the Digital Youth Divas program into their curriculum or after-school program are integral to spreading and encouraging STEM learning in young girls.
- Sponsors: Corporate sponsors looking to help provide access to technology and information for Divas events and classes encourage interest and learning.
- Researchers: Researchers wishing to collaborate in the study of girls in STEM, computer science education, blended or online learning, making communities, and learner identities, please connect with us regarding your related research and upcoming conferences!
