No,  volunteers do not need to have a technical background: the professional and soft skills our students gain from volunteers are as important as the technical skills and work experience. These connections build a network of contacts for students and promote pathways to employment.   

Time commitment for volunteering can be anywhere from one hour a week, to one session a cohort. If you have interest in lending your perspective and expertise, but are not sure how it might fit, please fill out the form and reach out to talk to our team.

No financial obligations for volunteering. Your time is most valuable.
