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.
Mentors develop positive, encouraging relationships with students at Bold Idea program sites and serve as role models to support students’ career aspirations in technology. Mentors challenge students to collaborate and to solve any problems they encounter.
