TODAY: Volunteers: Join us for an Hour of Code webinar

I'm sorry for the short notice, but there is a webinar today at 2pm (Central) for Hour of Code. I volunteered for Hour of Code last year, and I had a blast working with the students. I wrote about my experiences here: https://benramsey.com/blog/2015/12/hour-of-code/

I hope you'll consider volunteering to support this year's Hour of Code.

Cheers,

We’re following up because we received some questions about volunteering during the Hour of Code, our annual campaign to introduce computer science to every student during Computer Science Education Week, December 5th-11th.

Join us for a volunteer webinar.

We’re hosting a Volunteer Training Webinar on Wednesday, October 12 @ 12pm PT / 3pm ET. Please join us for more information on how you can inspire students through the Hour of Code, and to ask any questions you have during a Q&A session.

What other resources are available for volunteers?

As a reminder, you can review this toolkit about how to coordinate with teachers once they contact you from the volunteer map, things to do and share with the classroom, and what to expect when you volunteer.

You can also reach out directly to a school in your area or to other organizations such as the Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, or Boys & Girls Club of America and offer to help them organize an event. You can also host your own Hour of Code event!

We hope you're ready to change students' lives :-)

Check out these awesome testimonials from last year's Hour of Code volunteers:

“The best part of my experience was that the entire class were women and people of color. It bodes well for the future of our industry to have a chance to reach and excite these kids.”

“I LOVED seeing how excited the kids were. Students who didn’t do as well academically were excelling at thinking like a developer. [Hour of Code] gave them a place to feel confident.”

Thank you, again, for supporting this movement and for making a difference in your community’s schools. I hope to talk to you next week!
