About

Use your experience in the tech industry to mentor someone who's been in prison and trying to launch their career!

Unloop runs a mentorship program for students in prison who will be releasing soon and are planning for careers and life outside after our one-year coding program, and for formerly incarcerated people who are teaching themselves to code.

Mentor positions are for professional developers who are looking to make a minimum of a 3-month commitment. You will decide on a schedule with your mentee, but will have check-ins in person or by call every other week, and by email regularly. This role will consist of answering questions about the tech industry, helping your mentee develop their portfolio and resume, setting a schedule for continued coding education, and being a stable and supportive presence for someone looking to enter the tech industry after incarceration.

This is an awesome way to volunteer in a one-on-one setting, put your industry experience to use for social good, and have an amazing impact on someone's life!
