Understanding your audience, their needs and aspirations, and reaching them via their preferred medium for communication is key to building a strong support base. Millennials may be the most researched generation, but understanding Generation Z is critical to success of your organization.

They also value authenticity that explains why influencer marketing has become extremely popular for targeting younger people.

On October 11th, 2018, in celebration of the International Day of the Girl, Girls Who Code launched their #Sisterhood campaign. The campaign featured a visual album — a series of YouTube videos – aimed to inspire and engage young women to become activists and make impact in their local communities. The challenge was to effectively reach and engage girls between the ages of 13 and 22.
