Virtual CodeDay is a weekend tech event that gets diverse students to start coding around the world. 70% of attendees with no prior experience continue programming after participating.

We're looking for judges, mentors, and speakers to help students have a great and successful weekend.

If you're interested, register at virtual.codeday.org/volunteer

Low Commitment: Judging

CodeDay judges review submissions (a 2min video + information about the team members), pick their favorites, and then deliberate with other judges to determine overall winners.

Time: Sunday of the event, 2hr starting at 12 pm Pacific / 3 pm Eastern.
Requirements: None
Training: Attend an optional training webinar, or we'll give you a guide before judging starts.

Low Commitment: Workshop Host

Students at CodeDay are excited to learn the many ways technology is applied in the industry. CodeDay is looking for workshops for both beginner- and intermediate-level students.

Time: Saturday of the event; flexible 30min-1hr slots throughout the day.
Requirements: Experience in tech, design, or project management.
Training: Speaker guide covering the audience and technical details, suggested workshops are available if you don't have an idea already.

Medium Commitment: Mentoring

Mentors help students create apps and games. At a minimum, CodeDay assigns mentors to check in with one group throughout the weekend. Mentors can also help all students by hosting office hours or answering chat questions. Students need help with higher-level problems -- more "how should I approach this problem" and less "how do I use this particular technology."

Time: Saturday of the event; flexible 2-3 hours throughout the day.
Requirements: Experience in tech, design, or product management.
Training: We request that first-time mentors join a 30min webinar.

Low Commitment: Judging

CodeDay judges get to talk to student teams 1-1 and try their apps and games, watch student presentations, and then present several awards based on creativity, effort, and polish. It's a low-pressure way to meet students in the community.

Time: Sunday of the event, from 9 am through noon.
Requirements: None
Training: We send judges a one-page guide the week before the event and brief them when they arrive. No additional training is needed.

Medium Commitment: Mentoring

Mentors help students create apps and games. They patrol an assigned section of the event, looking for students experiencing problems. Students need help with higher-level problems -- more "how should I approach this problem" and less "how do I use this particular technology."

Time: Saturday of the event; two-hour shifts starting at 2 pm.
Requirements: Technical, design, or product management job role or background.
Training: We request that first-time mentors join a one-hour training call in the two weeks before the event.
