Our summer program, Hello World, teaches female and nonbinary middle school students how to code an interactive website in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript from scratch through a 1 or 2 week-long summer camp. Campers should walk away with the techniques, resources, and passion to continue tinkering with their projects.
We are opening applications for volunteer positions within Hello World through May 22nd.

General Outline

The camp will have two tracks that teach at different speeds: a normal track and a faster track that is meant for students that have previous coding experience. Volunteers may teach workshops focused on a particular coding concept or work one-on-one with students.

We understand that your commitment may vary, and as we approach the camp, we will be deciding on volunteers that will perform as an instructor or standard volunteer based on preference and performance.

Responsibilities
  • Instructors
    • Assist and manage students in their room
    • Teach students the topics of the corresponding homeroom
  • Standard volunteers
    • Act as a supporting volunteer to instructors
    • May be broken out with students for a one-on-one and so should be comfortable communicating concepts with students
Time Commitment
  • Around 3.5-4 hours a day the week of the program
    • You must choose to volunteer for at least 1 session of Hello World which spans 2 weeks
    • Session 1 is July 5th-9th and July 12th-16th
    • Session 2 is July 19th-23th and July 26th-30th
  • An hour a week on volunteer training in the weeks leading up to the camp
  • An initial meeting with the program director to determine your coding level and provide extra training if needed
  • If you would like, you are welcome to stay after the program to work with students who are in need of more additional help!

Mission Statement

Our mission is to diversify the community of ponderers and creators by equipping the next generation with the tools of technology, thinking, and leadership to improve the world, bit by bit.

Description

We strive for low-cost programs to teach and encourage students, especially girls and other underrepresented youths in the STEM community, to code, to examine the world, and to lead. We currently offer three programs: Hello World, Form and Function, and Uncommon Sense. Hello World is a summer camp aimed at teaching middle school girls the inner workings of websites. Form and Function is a free after-school program empowering middle schoolers with the tools web development. Uncommon Sense allows high schoolers to examine the world critically and see things with a skeptical eye. For our paid programs, we ensure that scholarships are readily available to ensure all can enjoy our programs. In addition to sharing the gift of code and knowledge, we train student volunteers through hands-on learning to adopt the responsibility, initiative, and dedication critical to strong leadership. We started as a summer camp to teach middle school girls how to code, and the following year, we expanded to clubs for middle schools and high schools. In 2020, we also incorporated critical thinking as one of our services.
