Get Involved

Build Baltimore’s workforce of tomorrow by getting involved today! Partnerships with local businesses and technology industry groups are critical to ensure students learn the skills our tech-driven economy demands. Companies big and small and individuals with all levels of experience can get involved in an advisory capacity, by interacting with students, or by making a donation or sponsoring an event.

For additional information on any of these opportunities, please contact dianne@codeintheschools.org


Advise

Join our Industry Advisory Board. The board meets twice a year in the fall and spring to review curricula and make recommendations that help keep the content that students are keeping up-to-date with industry trends. Optional meetings include quarterly industry educator roundtables and as well as event communities for our annual Game Jam and Girls in Computer Science Summit.


Interact

For a more hands-on experience interacting with students. We offer a variety of ways to volunteer. Opportunities for guest speaking, leading one-time workshops, or mentoring student projects are available year round to employees of all technical (or non-technical) levels. Examples include teaching a simple Hour of Code tutorial at an elementary school, running a workshop on UX Design at the Girls in CS Summit, or mentoring a more advanced software development project. Technical Mentors are needed in the areas of Unity Game Development and C# programming, Data Science and Python, and Java Programming.
