VOLUNTEERS: Intermediate RailsBridge Workshop for Women

We're looking for workshop volunteers! Because this workshop will be exclusively focused on the intermediate curriculum, we’re especially interested in teachers who feel comfortable teaching more advanced topics in a more open-ended format.  Since the intermediate curriculum is newer, please plan on attending the teacher training on Wednesday, January 16 so you can familiarize yourself with it.

We also have many other (non-technical) roles available, including check-in, keeping track of glitches in the documentation, taking pictures, posting throughout the day to social networks, setting up rooms/equipment, etc.  Finally, we always need people to take on childcare. Please let us know if you're interested or know of a babysitter who might be interested.  (Childcare is our only "paid position" but volunteers are always the best recruiters).

    Does this venue require a full set of cords and power strips?

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
