Donate to our Scholarship Programs
The LEAGUE is a 501(c)(3) non-profit programming school that succeeds by igniting young minds. Every student at our school learns the critical thinking skills that maybe… just possibly… transforms all our futures for the better. We put your money to work extending our scholarship program to students from under-resourced and under-represented populations in San Diego who might otherwise never dream of becoming a programmer! Of the 1.7 k students we have served since 2006, 26%.7 percent were on a full scholarship. In 2020 we aim to raise that number to 30% and beyond. Below we share the story of just one of our scholarship students to help you feel the difference your contribution makes.

Isis joined The LEAGUE in October 2016 and is one of our best student TAs and ambassadors. Among her many achievements in the last few years are securing an internship at Viasat through a tech force program funded by the San Diego Foundation and winning a National Girls Living STEM award in 2019.
As Student Ambassador she has represented the LEAGUE at the 2019 Girl Scouts San Diego Volunteer Conference, at The San Diego Foundation’s 2019 event “Science & Technology: The Next Generation, and at iARoC 2017, (a robotics competition), where her team won third place in the speed event and the technical presentation event.
An outgoing and welcoming teacher, as a young woman from a group underrepresented in tech, and as a photographer attending an arts-focused high school, Isis smashes younger students’ ideas of who programmers are, and her story of how long she’s been programming and what it has enabled her to accomplish shows them the possibilities that tech offers.
