Our organization is able to help so many children learn technology at an early age because of our amazing volunteers!

Tweens & Technology is in need of volunteers to teach rising 5-8th students Python. We currently have a number of students who have completed the Intro to Python which has provided them with a foundation and we're in need to expand our volunteer team to help support learning objectives for the advanced Python concepts.

The camp will be virtual and scheduled for July 11 - 15, 9a-4p EST.

  • Volunteers for the morning, afternoon or full-day - 9a-12n shift, 1p - 4p shift, or 9a - 4p. The morning shift is instructional time, afternoon shift is supporting students as they apply what they've learned.
