WHAT WE AMPLIFIED IN THE SUMMER OF 2020

Kode with Klossy summer 2020 impact report

As the world changed this spring- Kode With Klossy quickly pivoted to create a virtual camp offering. The launch of this digital offering allowed us to serve more young women than ever before in our most geographically diverse footprint to date.

 

We made Zoom links and set up Slack channels. We streamed in inspiring women in technology as part of our speaker and mentor series. We built websites and mobile apps. And, most importantly, scholars built community!

SCALING


We had our biggest summer to date - 2000 scholarships for spots in 50 camps led by 150 instructional leaders.




DIVERSITY


75% of 2020 scholars identify as people of color. "I truly had such an INCREDIBLE experience full of learning, self-discovery, and socialization. KWK is jam-packed with incredible experiences that even in a virtual setting makes it feel so complete and in-person (when it's not!). From the coding practices to chill and fun breaks to inspiring speaker series, KWK is really the whole package for girl empowerment and tech learning. It's truly one of the best programs out there! Once again, love the diversity and positive environment, everyone from fellow scholars to IAs and Instructors were amazing." -Althea




GROWING OUR COMMUNITY


85% of our scholars this summer were new to Kode With Klossy.




CREATING THE BEST EXPERIENCE POSSIBLE


Our net promoter scores are higher than they've ever been. ●Scholar NPS: +94
●Instructor NPS: + 94
●Instructor Assistant NPS: +95




BUILDING A WELCOMING COMMUNITY


Scholars agree the Kode With Klossy community felt welcoming and inclusive; and scholars felt they were part of an inspired community.




CHANGING WITH THE WORLD TO CHANGE THE WORLD


Our stakeholders feel that we pivoted well to a virtual camp experience, especially our instructors who felt this was an incredibly strong virtual learning experience especially compared to some of their spring learning experiences.




UPLIFTING STRONG LEADERSHIP


“I felt that the curriculum was perfectly tailored to the constraints of virtual learning. I loved that it was accessible, consistent, and relevant to scholars.” "The team was exceptional--from training us on all the content & technical work to quickly shifting to remote instruction--I felt very prepared to teach camp. As I watch districts and schools around the country scramble to figure out a way to make this shift, I am still amazed at how easy a transition it was for us at KWK.”

  • 100% of our instructors said Zoom facilitated a strong virtual classroom environment
  • 100% of our instructors said they were able to successfully lead in camp with their equipment

EQUITY AND INCLUSIVITY
Our camps are equitable and inclusive. Experience scores do not seem to be affected by race/ethnicity, free-reduced lunch status, experience, age or any other characteristic.

Learning

We learned about the endless possibilities from running our biggest camp ever without a dip in satisfaction or other outcomes

Empowering peer leaders

This year, Kode With Klossy invested like never before in the instructor assistant role with more comprehensive training and leadership modules and even a module on financial literacy!

Teaching new curricula

This summer, Kode With Klossy launched a data science pilot to demystify data and inspire scholars to bring data science skills into whatever career path they choose.

Role models that look like our scholars

Kode With Klossy launched a virtual speaker series with inspiring women from diverse backgrounds that are leaders and trailblazers in STEAM.
