Abstract: The study explores the positive impact for girls and young women from engaging in computer clubs, with regard to their vocational preparation as well as to their social empowerment. Our comparative study focuses on gender related barriers in a Palestinian refugee camp as well as an intercultural neighborhood in Germany and discusses how the computer club can contribute to overcoming these. Findings indicate a positive impact of open and collaborative working and learning structures; in Palestine and Germany alike.
