Adult Volunteers

CodeTeen

What will you do?

Help teens aged 13 to 17 learn coding skills as they work through tutorials (as beginners) or their own projects (intermediate/advanced) in this drop-in program. Volunteers coach and support participants individually or in teams, as they develop coding skills to create web pages, apps, and games in an open, free learning environment.

Peer-to peer coaching is encouraged as participants gain confidence and experience in working on their projects. Volunteers help participants gain a deeper understanding of what drives computer technology and become more informed information users.
