Emergent Works 1-on-1 virtual Mentorship Application - Mentor
Emergent Works creates life-changing opportunities in technology for people impacted by incarceration. We offer high-quality tech education to formerly incarcerated people and communities that are disproportionately criminalized and incarcerated while reducing the stigma associated with prison within the tech industry.
During this difficult time, we are launching a 1-on-1 mentorship program to match Emergent Works community members with virtual mentors to further their learning. This is a 4-month program in which professional software engineers mentor formerly incarcerated and justice-involved individuals.
The ideal mentor is a seasoned software engineer who is interested in growing as a teacher and is willing to commit time to mentorship.
We look for mentors that are:
- Passionate about working with justice-involved individuals
- Highly competent with web development technologies
- Empathetic, patient, and adaptable
- Willing to go the extra mile to help a student
- Excellent communicators
- Our program is free!
- Laptop & wifi needed
- Class 2x per week (flexible hours)
- 4 hours/week
- Via Zoom or Google Hangouts
- Curriculum Provided
- Passion projects will be picked by mentees
- We host bi-weekly sharing circles to support and coach our mentors (75min every 2 weeks)
with any questions!
