Code for Fun is looking for motivated mentors with a Computer Science background to coach and advise high school students during the process of their project with Hack High School

This position is a volunteering position, with at least a semester commitment. This will need about 2 to 3 hours per week.


What is Hack High School?

Hack High School is a program focusing on providing the opportunity for students in High School to learn computer science. The students will be in groups of 4 to 5 with a mentor assigned to them. They will work collaboratively on a project.

They will use our discord channel to meet with their mentor and work together. If they are local to the bay area and the mentor is available, there is a possibility to meet in Code for Fun office in person.


List of projects for September 2021:

  • Build a PC . Students purchase their own parts, the group help each other throughout the project
  • Design a game in Python (using concepts of Classes). Collaborate with Github to share/drop code. Collaboration regarding design / features / coding. Size of a group = 4 to 5 students
  • Robotics (Arduino / Drones) build something
  • Data Science / AI - Train and validate Machine Learning algorithms

Build a decision making model using Machine Learning algorithms, test data, validation


What is the role of the mentor:

Mentors should guide the students in milestone creation, work distribution, peer review feedback, self evaluation. They are also expected to facilitate collaboration among the group for active participation, engagement and student retention.


Mentors are acting as coaches to help students fulfill their goals rather than being solely a subject matter expert in a field and teach the students. We encourage students to find their own learning opportunities and the mentor is there to support them and make sure students are committed to the group, meet regularly and progress throughout their project. They provide feedback, guidance.

Mentors will be placed in a project where they have a general knowledge of the subject matter.


Requirements to become a mentor:

  • Professional in the domain of tech or previous H2S student
  • Committed to serve 3 hours per week to connect with mentees and lead them
  • Strong desire to help students accomplish a project of their own
  • Reliable, professional
  • Past mentorship experience highly recommended
  • Willingness to pass a background check (legally required to volunteer with Code for fun)
