Volunteer with Girls Who Code!

Cupertino Library is partnering with Girls Who Code to bring free computer science opportunities to girls across our community. We are looking for a Volunteer Facilitator to help facilitate our Club.

Through the Girls Who Code Clubs program, which is held in person, facilitators receive access to free resources, 120+ hours of customizable plug and play curricula, inspiring women in tech spotlights, community-building activities, comprehensive support and training, and more to help 6-12th graders be brave and resilient as they use code to change the world. No prior coding experience is needed to facilitate.

To facilitate a Club, Facilitators must:

  • Be 18+

  • Have the ability to pass a background check

  • Be available to lead the Club for 2 hours per week for a minimum of 10 weeks, twice per year (Spring/Fall)

  • Be available to hold the weekly meeting on Tuesday nights from 7 – 9PM

  • Be comfortable learning alongside Club girls; no computer science experience is needed

  • Have a passion to help and the ability to foster community within the Girls Who Code Club

All resources from Girls Who Code are provided for free to the Club Facilitator, including:

  • 120+ hours of curriculum, tutorials of all skill levels, and an online learning management system

  • Program support, including Facilitator trainings and resources

  • Access to Girls Who Code online events

  • Recruitment materials to help spread the news about our Club
