Volunteer Opportunities

Mentor - 2018 Fall Semester

6 locations

Volunteer mentors are the heart of Bold Idea’s coding education programs. Our students depend on their mentors for encouragement and coaching as they develop their projects. Rather than give answers, mentors challenge students to work together as a team and problem solve – whether it’s a bug in their program, a tough coding concept or what step to take next.

Floater Mentor - 2018 Fall Semester

Can't make a weekly commitment to one program site? Sign up to "float" between our various program sites that occasionally need additional support. You'll receive the same training as our regular mentors.

Girl Interest - Steering Committee

One of Bold Idea’s 2-year strategic goals is creating interest in computer science among Dallas area girls. To accomplish this goal, Bold Idea is convening a steering committee to explore new Bold Idea programs for girls including workshops and camps, develop corporate and community partnerships, and attract new resources including funding and people. Ideal committee members should have available time to dedicate to the committee activities and/or experience in these areas.

Marketing Team

We are seeking highly motivated and experienced people to join our new marketing team. The team will develop strategies for how to communicate our message to potential donors, parents of our program participants and volunteers. Ideal candidates would have experience in public relations, copywriting, message development, social media, community engagement or digital strategy.
