Mentoring with She Codes

Want to get involved and mentor with She Codes?


Creating a sustainable ecosystem of mentors

She Codes is a growing community, with our goal of inspiring 100,000 women by 2025, we can't get this done with out our mentors. Our aim is to inspire women and create a sustainable ecosystem of developers and women in tech!

Lead Mentor

The Lead Mentor it’s the main point of contact for students and other mentors at She Codes Plus. You will lead and deliver classes for different modules (HTML/CSS, Python, Django, or React), which means being on top of content, format, exercises, platforms and all other tools involved in the Program.

Ideal for: People with experience both in the technical side (with a strong background in one or more of our 4 focus languages) as well as experience in teaching, who is comfortable public speaking and managing a cohort of students.

Industry Mentor

The Industry Mentor is one of the key differences between She Codes Plus and most coding programs in the market or, as we like to call, one of our “cupcake factors”. You will not only support students with their projects, but also provide industry expertise such as sharing stories about the real world application of the skills, and insight into their industry and organisation. You are a source of expertise and inspiration!

Ideal for: Software developers who have worked or are currently working in industry who want to have a hands on role in mentoring and supporting the She Coders. A background in formal mentoring (through She Codes or other events) or experience mentoring juniors in your workplace is preferable.

Commitment: at least 1 content module.

Junior Mentor

The Junior Mentor will work with the lead mentor and team of mentors to support students in their projects. You will also engage with the students to ensure they feel part of a welcoming group, sharing your journey, expertise and experience learning.

Ideal for: Alumni of She Codes programs, students, and developers who are new to the industry.

Commitment:  at least 1 content module.

Volunteer Mentor

The Volunteer Mentor is our “drop-in” Industry or Junior Mentor. You will support and inspire the students with a bit more flexibility.

Ideal for: Mentors who want to come and support the cohort for a week, without actively being involved in the students projects or ongoing learning journey. 

Commitment: at least 1 content week.

Workshop Mentor

The Workshop Mentor's is where it all starts, we need mentors for our one day workshops, these are volunteer position's and it's how our ecosystem all starts. You support and inspire our workshop students and give them the confidence to try the other programs.

Commitment: No ongoing commitment, just buy a 'Mentor' ticket, then come on the day!

Keen to support the next wave of women in technology? The She Codes Mentor Give-Back Program allows our mentoring team to pay-it-forward by donating their fee back to fund future She Codes programs. 

In this program, mentors have the opportunity to donate their fee to a Scholarship fund. Every time that the fund reaches one of the thresholds, another woman gets a chance to upskill into a tech job!
