Help youth be creative, solve problems, and think logically by introducing them to computer science!
The ROCK Center for Youth Development (Midland, MI) is seeking volunteers to be a “guru” at an 8-week after-school computer programming class. This is a great opportunity for college students and professionals to help encourage kids that computer science can be fun!
Students will watch instructional videos on the Google CS First website (https://www.cs-first.com/clubplan/music-sound) and then code their own projects using Scratch (https://scratch.mit.edu/), a visual programming language.
As a “guru” you will help facilitate the lessons, keep students on track, answer questions, and help provide an encouraging and fun environment. A background in computer programming is not required!
Classes will be held during The ROCK’s after-school program on Thursdays at Northeast Middle School (and possibly Jefferson Middle School) in Midland, MI – February 9th through March 30th.
Volunteers must be able to commit to at least 4 of the 8 classes and be available from 2:45pm-3:15pm.
Volunteers must have an approved background check and Midland Public Schools BRAVO application – https://www.midlandps.org/Pages/bravo-project.aspx.
