Code Kentucky Software Development Mentors

ORGANIZATION: KentuckianaWorks

Code Kentucky’s success hinges on volunteer mentors who help our students navigate the tech industry, troubleshoot problems, and create projects that are integral to landing their first tech role. Help cultivate the next wave of tech talent in Kentucky by volunteering with us. The opportunity to launch a new career in tech is truly life-changing for many of our students, and you may even find the next junior developer for your own team.

As a mentor, you will work with a group of adult career-changers as they learn what it means to be a software developer and land a job in the industry. We offer classes in C#, JavaScript, Python, with more options to come. Mentoring is a 12-week long commitment, which means you'll attend the evening meetups to answer questions about tech, work on demo projects, troubleshoot issues, and generally help build excitement and engagement in learning these skills.
