Info for Volunteers

Current Coded by Kids Volunteer Roles

Class Coordinators - Class Coordinators are a key part of classroom management. They support our instructors by assisting with several tasks, such as: onboarding new students, providing parents with information, setting students up with new projects, and conducting digital literacy assessments.

Volunteer Coordinators - Volunteer Coordinators are responsible for supporting our growing team of volunteers through orientations, training sessions, and onboarding. They are master organizers who enjoy public speaking as well as paying attention to the details.

Volunteer Instructors - Our Volunteer Instructors are tech superheros who may find themselves teaching a 9 year old javascript in one class and giving a 17 year old guidance on pursuing a career as a developer in the next. The technical concepts that Volunteer Instructors teach include HTML, CSS, JavaScript, wireframing and version control. We are currently looking for instructors that can teach coding and/or design.

Event Ambassadors - Event Ambassadors are the people who tell our story to the outside world and help bring in new members to our community. Ideal Event Ambassadors are people who enjoy going to events and networking. They attend events throughout the City on our behalf to help spread our story and increase support.

Why Volunteer With Us

Our dedicated team of volunteers is key to our success and the driving force behind the impact that we have on Philadelphia students. Your commitment directly affects the lives of Philadelphia students by giving them access tech education programs and mentorship.

Becoming A Coded by Kids Volunteer

To become a Coded by Kids volunteer please complete the volunteer application form. After completing the volunteer application form you will receive an email from the Coded by Kids Volunteer Coordination Team to schedule a class visit. The class visit gives you the opportunity to learn more about what we do and allows our staff to learn more about you.

After your class visit, if accepted as a Coded by Kids volunteer, you will be scheduled for a volunteer orientation (held on the first Saturday of every month). During your volunteer orientation you will be provided with all necessary paperwork and will be provided with assistance in completing the required background checks.
