Code Nation equips students in under-resourced high schools with the skills, connections, and experiences that together create access to careers in technology. Code Nation is seeking web and software developers to be classroom teachers in our Intro to Web Development Course.  We place teams of 4 developers at each of our schools sites. Volunteers commit to teaching 2x a week for the full school year (Sept-May), either in the morning during the school day or during after school hours.  Volunteers receive ongoing training & support and have access to a ready-to-deliver curriculum that includes HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.


Volunteers will teach, mentor, and inspire the next generation of technologists. Volunteers will contribute to diversity and inclusion efforts in the tech industry while joining a local and national community of 300+ civically-minded tech professionals.  Volunteers will grow their own technical and professional skills!
