You must be over 18 to volunteer at CodeYourFuture
Who can be a volunteer?
The only case in which you cannot be a volunteer is if you are or plan to be a trainee at CodeYourFuture. All trainees are encouraged to volunteer when they graduate to support our community.
When can I join?
You can join anytime as there is always something you can help out with all year round.
What can I do?
This is a non-exhaustive list of things you can help out with:
Helping to answer trainees' questions during classes
Helping to teach a part or all of a class
Reviewing trainee coursework on GitHub
Helping out trainees outside of classes, either in person or in Slack
Helping trainees during their graduation coding project
Posting on social media or creating content
Organising social events
Helping specific teams, which involves working towards the goals outlined in the volunteer teams page through regular communication and meetings with other mentors
Volunteers are not expected to attend every class and to do all of the above, but you are more than welcome to if you would like!
Later in the course, the trainees learn frameworks such as React, Node and Express. If you are not familiar with these frameworks, you might be able to pick them up quickly as they are taught in class. You can still help trainees as mistakes are made at the syntax and logical level where knowledge of the framework is not required.
After you join
Once you register with us, you will be invited to join an info session.
During the session, you will learn about CodeYourFuture's mission, program and volunteering opportunities before being onboarded to start your volunteering journey as a CYF volunteer.
