CodeDay is a 24-hour tech event that gets diverse students to start coding. Over 70% of attendees with no prior experience continue programming after.
We're looking for judges and mentors to help students have a great and successful weekend.
If you're interested, register at www.codeday.org/volunteer, or reply to this email with your desired position.
(Insert date and location of your sponsored event.)

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.
