Mentors are the spark behind the great accomplishments of the students. It is a highly rewarding experience that lets you collaborate and help students achieve their goals. Mentors can provide help in technical (engineering / programming) training, organization (planning, financial, etc.) or just general support (keep students on track, track goals, etc.). Mentors mean the world to students, and you will be able to learn and experience a variety of challenges along the way.
If you’re looking for a highly rewarding and challenging volunteer position, do consider talking to us about mentoring a team. All sorts of skills are needed, you don’t need to be a computer genius or the world’s best engineer. What you do need are some skills that you are willing to pass on to students in the ultimate pay-it-forward role, while having a lot of fun.
