Hello World Volunteer Information

The goal of our summer program is to teach middle school girls how to code an interactive website in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript through a 1 to 2 week-long summer camp. For more information on the specifics of Hello World, please visit our Hello World page.

Volunteer applications are now open, and we will be accepting volunteers through May 22nd.

General Outline

The camp will have two tracks that teach at different speeds: a normal track and a faster track that is meant for students that have previous coding experience. Volunteers may teach workshops focused on a particular coding concept or work one-on-one with students.

We understand that your commitment may vary, and as we approach the camp, we will be deciding on volunteers that will act as an instructor or standard volunteer based on preference and performance.
