We are a social enterprise in Madagascar that trains talented, underprivileged youth into world-class software developers to work in global tech teams.

We are seeking volunteers with experience in software development or technical hiring for a high-impact role as a career counsellor. Volunteering as a career counsellor is an invaluable and crucial work that will have a real impact on our students ’ future as well as for those who will follow them.

Your Role as a Career Counselor

  • Perform mock interviews.
  • Following mock interview practice, provide a written appraisal on the mentee's performance and areas for improvement.
  • Talk about your own professional experiences.
  • Build a positive and constructive relationship with mentees.
  • Provide, if any, written insight or ideas on how we can improve interview preparation for all mentees at Onja.

The students

  • Mostly female, all African and from underprivileged backgrounds.
  • Each student graduated high school in the top 1% of their peers and was selected for our programme from an initial pool of 200,000 students.
  • They have spent over 4,000 hours learning and writing HTML5, JavaScript, React, Redux, TypeScript and React Native.
  • They have achieved an advanced English level (IELTS 7 to 9).
How It Works
  • We schedule a call with you to explain more about the Onja initiative and what the role looks like. If your values and experience align with our mission, we can schedule an introductory call with you and one of our students.
  • Students will reach out to you to request an appointment during your times of availability. You can increase/decrease your availability according to what is most helpful and works for you and your mentees.
  • We have 18 students that each need interview training. We think the best approach is for each career counsellor to interview each student at least once.
  • If you are keen but worried about the time commitment let us know and we should be able to work something out.
  • We suggest using Google Meet or Zoom for calls.
