The Community Outreach Coordinator works with their Chapter Leader and the
Black Kids Code executive team to spearhead student recruitment and marketing
efforts in order to reach as many community groups as possible. With guidance
from their Chapter Leader, they must develop a Community Outreach Strategy for
their local chapter. Their primary role in their chapter is creating, planning, and
executing the various initiatives and campaigns they outline in their strategy.
The Community Outreach Coordinator also hosts events for
parents, students, and community leaders.
Classroom Technology Assistants are responsible for helping the Instructor
deliver an engaging, educational, and awesome experience for our girls.
They assist the Instructors in teaching the core concepts of computer
programming by mentoring the girls and assisting them individually when
they are struggling or need extra attention. They are also responsible for
helping the Events Coordinator in preparing for and running each workshop.
The Events Coordinator keeps track of all volunteers and maintains an
updated list for the local chapter. The Coordinator also ensures all
volunteers are given equal opportunity to participate in events and
engages with volunteers to keep them excited about Black kids code.
The Events Coordinator is responsible for planning, organizing, and running all
of their chapter’s events. Whenever an event is scheduled, they must create a
project plan to ensure that all of the necessary tasks are completed.
They oversee the day-to-day operations of the local chapter and supervise
volunteers at all workshops to make sure everything runs smoothly. They also
must maintain an updated list of volunteers and parents.
Instructors are responsible for delivering an exceptional and educational
workshop experience for our boys. Our workshops cover a wide range of
topics related to development, design, and making, and the Instructor is
required to have a solid understanding of all course materials. They must
be enthusiastic, self-motivated, and comfortable working with children.
