Description

MENTORS & VOLUNTEERS

MENTORS Each mentor (or team of mentors) works with a team of 5 girls to guide them through each week of Technovation’s 12-week curriculum starting in January. Girls see their mentors as role models and look to them for guidance on how to overcome obstacles and solve problems when working on challenging projects. Teams of 2 to 4 mentors can divide the topics they mentor (e.g. one helping with coding, one helping with business topics) or alternate attendance from one week to the next.

Some mentors have a background in computer science, but many do not. The primary value students receive from mentors is access to a role model and stories of real-world experiences. Mentors might not know the answer to every question their teams ask them, but they have experienced not knowing all the answers in the past and can guide the teams to move forward anyway.

OTHER VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

We are also looking for fundraisers, fiscal sponsors, presenters, event volunteers, and more.
