The Robbins Library is planning to launch a Girls Who Code club this fall, and we’re looking for volunteer instructors!
Girls Who Code is a national non-profit that seeks to encourage girls to enter technology professions. You can read more about their mission here. Our local club will meet weekly from October-June, after school on either Tuesdays or Wednesdays, depending on instructor availability.
Here’s what we’re looking for in our instructors:
- Knowledge of programming fundamentals, such as loops, conditionals, and functions
- Availability 3-4 hours a week during the school year
- Experience working with middle school or high school students
- A passion for the Girls Who Code mission
You do not need a computer science degree, nor do you need to be a woman to be a Girls Who Code instructor.
Please send your resume and a letter of introduction, including your weekday availability, to avillet at minlib dot net.
We hope to hire two instructors and a backup, so we’ll be covered in case of sickness and/or vacations. The positions are open until filled, and priority is given to those who apply early.
