Technovation GirlsBC Mentorship Program

!
We’ll soon host our information session and open up Mentor applications for 2024… stay tuned!
“Every year, Technovation Girls equips young women ages 8-18 with the skills to become tech entrepreneurs and leaders. With the support of volunteer mentors, girls work in teams to code mobile apps or build AI projects that address real-world problems they’ve identified. Learn more about the program by visiting the Technovation Challenge website.

As a Technovation GirlsBC Mentor you will:

  • Work with teams for 4 months, spending roughly 20 hours helping them develop their ideas
  • Supervising teams of girls as they create apps or build AI projects to solve community problems
  • Coordinate meeting times with your teams and meet virtually

You do not need to be a technology professional: the mark of a good mentor is someone who embraces and embodies the “I don’t know, let’s find out together” mentality!
