From November 10th-11th, ChickTech will host the 2018 ChickTech High School Kickoff! Our event will engage 150 high school girls in hands-on technology learning. And we need your help making it possible!
How can I volunteer?
We want you there! This event is not possible without 60+ volunteers who volunteer their time to inspire the next generation of technology creators. We accept individual volunteers and volunteer groups. Shifts are a few hours and range from driving to workshops assistance to set up and break down. All volunteer positions require this volunteer orientation and a criminal background check (that we pay for). Snacks will be served at the orientation!
What is High School Kickoff?
The High School Kickoff is a two-day long event that inspires local girls to become hands-on technology creators. In 2018, our kickoff will be held from November 10th-11th at Portland State’s Maseeh College of Engineering. This exciting weekend-long technology camp has youth speakers, keynote speakers, 10 hours of hands-on technology workshops, meals, college tours, and the Tech Showcase. All of our High School workshops are hands-on so that participants come out of each with a sense of accomplishment and a burst of confidence. By increasing our participants’ self-confidence and interest in technology, we increase the number of girls who aspire to technology careers. This important work is shaping the workforce of tomorrow to have the diverse skills and perspectives needed for the industry to thrive.
