We had our first tech awareness/coding camp in Port-au-Prince, Haiti from 20-24th August, 2018 and we are seeking women in tech volunteers to provide virtual mentorship for our girl participants. The mentor will know conversational French to become Sister-Mentor to those girls. It would mean staying in touch with them monthly. It’s a great learning opportunity for both the mentor and the mentee!

If you are interested, please see below: Please send me a message or apply on our website: http://societyofwomencoders.org/index.fcgi/sisterMentor/

Once you are assigned a mentee/s, you’ll stay in touch with them on monthly basis (or more if you want to!), build friendship and guide them in their career and life goals. It’s a very flexible and open ended program. We will be helping/guiding you on every step of the way so both the mentor and the mentee can benefit from this relationship!

2. Prepare/update paperwork (certificates and atests usually required from an organization like yours);
3. Write (baby steps...!) and discuss a project draft - to validate the priorities within your group and to train your grant writing skills;
