ORGANIZATION: California 4-H Youth Development Program

  • 5 people are interested

Our team of five teens teaches computer science to kids. The teens are self-motivated, and adult volunteers do mentoring, with some logistical/administrative help, and generally pitch in wherever else seems helpful.

This team is part of the 4-H program in Santa Clara County. We do most of our coordination meetings virtually, and teach mostly in person. Most in-person meetings are in or near San Jose, CA. For the next year, we plan to do a regular schedule of teaching, in school programs and with a regular group of 4-H kids, probably once per month. Adult involvement is flexible, but mostly-regular attendance is really helpful. The teen leader role description should give you an idea of what the teens do; the role of adult volunteers is to support them in that role.

Teamwork and administrative skills are more important than computer science experience for this role.

Those who are interested are welcome to join the group for a few meetings and see if it is a good fit. Once committed, mentors will need to enroll as a 4-H volunteer, which includes a background check. You'll be volunteering alongside a current 4-H volunteer who can show you the ropes.
