Not only is Empowerment Lab fighting against inequity and injustice, they are offering an amazingly interesting and fun course in technology for teenage girls. I haven't heard of a course quite like theirs, that offers the full concept-to-website flow, including learning graphic design tools. Amazing job!

The course was super cool and I am very happy to have been able to create my own site, on which I can write about my canaris and tell their stories. Thanks again to the Team!! 🙂​

My daughter attended the recent Empowerment Lab course. She had taken several 'coding for girls' classes before, but she didn't really like any of them. Her experience with Empowerment Lab was overwhelmingly positive...She learned graphic design and how to build a real website in one single weekend, and she proudly shared the website link with family and friends. What was also very interesting, especially for teenage girls, was how the lab taught that images are manipulated in media and on social media. It is easier for girls to have a positive body image when they understand that the images they see in the media every day are actually being manipulated. This lesson was well reinforced by the girls who learned to manipulate photos themselves with Photoshop.

First of all, a huge thank you to the Empowerment Lab team! Maelyse is absolutely delighted with the internship. She had a great time, is proud of the skills she learned and spent a fair amount of time showing us what she had learned. The pace and number of hours was perfect, the support very professional. We wish you a very nice end of the year and good luck with your activities, thank you again!
