The Position

We need your help recruiting and screening volunteers for The League. This includes making post on volunteer recruitment sites, guiding volunteers through a step by step onboarding process, scheduling volunteer training, and following up and directing any questions they have.

About us
The League of Amazing Programmers is an after-school program that teaches Java to kids in 5th-12th grade online. Through our curriculum, students can start from zero and advance from the basics to the Oracle professional certification.

Classes are small (usually 4 kids or fewer) and run for 90 minutes each week. Our volunteers bring the reality and excitement of a tech career into the classroom, and their teaching contributions allow us to reach even more under-resourced students. Currently, 1 in 3 of our students participate in our program on a scholarship, and we want that number to grow!

Mission Statement

Igniting young minds through programming.

Description

The League of Amazing Programmers is a non-profit 501(c)(3) after-school institution that teaches Java to kids in grades 5 through 12. The League was founded based on the fundamental role that computer programming plays in today’s increasingly technical world. The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that one million programming jobs in the U.S. will be unfilled by 2020, yet computer science is rarely taught in public school systems. The League seeks to address this problem by teaching students to code throughout San Diego County, getting them interested at a young age so that they are more likely to pursue programming in college and in their careers. Our curriculum ends with preparation for the Oracle Professional Certification Exam, which gives students an edge when vying for a job against someone with otherwise similar qualifications. We believe young students’ lives are positively impacted by the critical thinking skills and self-confidence they gain from learning to code.

The League of Amazing Programmers seeks specifically to reach more girls and underserved youth, so that children from all backgrounds may have access to acquire the skills and education necessary to contribute to the workforce of the 21st century.
