Youth Mentorship | Mentees (Spring 2020)
Thank you so much for your interest in Out in Tech U's Mentorship Program!
The program is designed to support those who identify as part of the LGBTQIA+ community as they begin their careers in technology. Anyone between the ages of 17-24 is welcome to apply and no specific academic background is expected or required! Those selected to participate will be paired with a mentor who works in the tech industry to work on career development, technical training, and professional networking.
We offer both an in-person NYC mentorship program and a remote Digital mentorship program.
The mentorship cohort runs twice a year for 8 consecutive weeks (apply for both through this form!):
- Spring beginning week of March 25, 2020
- Fall cohort beginning September 2020 (exact date TBD)
Mentorship generally consists of two, 1-hour sessions with your mentor each week:
Session 1: This session will be focused on the development of a technical skill (e.g. intro to programming, how to run a social media campaign, how to build a website, etc.) that pertains to your area(s) of interest.
Session 2: This session will pertain to the development of a core (career-building) professional skill (e.g. how to write a resume, preparing for interviews, etc.).
Time Requirements: 3 hours per week
So go on! Tell us a little about yourself :) This information is being used for evaluation purposes and won’t be shared with a third-party without your consent.
Deadline to apply: Feb 3, 2020.

What city do you live in? Please use a City, State-abbreviation format (e.g., San Diego, CA or Springfield, MO)!
How do you identify? We care about diversity, and want to take into account the multiple ways in which the Out in Tech community might identify. This helps us improve our programming and our inclusion efforts. PLEASE CHECK ALL THAT APPLY. We won't share that information with anyone outside of our team.
