The SheLeadsIT's Caribbean Girls Hack initiative is inspiring the next generation of girls with hackathon events that teach and test digital skills across five countries. The 2019 hackathons were held in Jamaica, St. Vincent, Grenada, Trinidad and Tobago, and Barbados. The events engage young girls in interactive problem-solving experiences using technology and empower girls to pursue studies and careers in information and communication technology. Participants use information and communication technology tools to make progress on social and environmental issues through mobile app development, animation, robotics, digital video, digital art, and web design.
