DPS Academic Mentors Project - seeking computer scientists

Community Resources' Academic Mentor Project is seeking computer scientists to virtually mentor students who are interested in coding.

Since 1984 the Academic Mentors Project has matched high achieving, ambitious 5 th - 12 th grade students who have an interest in a particular topic/career focus with volunteer mentors from the community. Together students and mentors spend time learning more about that specific area of interest and typically work on a small project together. Volunteer mentors are asked to give approximately SIX hours total over the course of 3-6 meetings with a student, plus an initial set up meeting. This is normally an in person mentorship experience for students; however, due to the current remote learning situation in Denver Public Schools we are asking mentors to work with their students virtually via Google Meet or Zoom. Additional program information can be found at our https://www.communityresourcesinc.org/academic-mentors. For additional information, please contact Laura Kent at laura_kent@dpsk12.org.
