BGC Portland is seeking skilled volunteers who feel comfortable teaching coding skills to a team of youth. Teams are meeting on Fridays beginning in March and going through June. The goal for each team is to both teach computer skills as well as teamwork. Our youth have fun learning important skills that will encourage them to further explore STEM opportunities. Coaches must be available every Friday, and capable of also planning with Staff coaches in Club. Though this year coaching will be virtual this is still a great way to engage and build healthy, mentorship relationships with youth.
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Portland Metropolitan Area's mission is to empower all young people, especially those who need us most, to discover their full potential as caring, engaged, responsible community members.
Since 1946, The Boys & Girls Clubs of Portland Metropolitan Area has been providing thousands of young people throughout the Portland metro area with affordable, high-quality after-school and summer programs designed to help them develop the qualities needed to become responsible citizens and leaders. Our Clubs offer kids what they want the most: safe, clean, fun places to go when they are not in school; caring adults who respect and guide them; and challenging programs that teach them life skills and keep them engaged in productive activities.
