Library Seeks Facilitator/Instructors for ‘Girls Who Code’ Club

The Newton Free Library, preparing for its fifth year hosting the Newton Girls Who Code Club, seeks volunteer facilitator/instructors for this very popular, free, after-school program for Grades 6-12. The Library provides meeting space, and the global Girls Who Code organization provides curriculum materials. Facilitators do not need technical experience and may learn alongside Club members. They need a passion for closing the gender gap in technology, skill in fostering community in youth groups, and the ability to volunteer 3 to 4 hours per week, October through May (including preparation and travel). Men and women are encouraged to apply. The Library expects to host two sections, each with 20-25 girls and two or more facilitators meeting two hours each week in afternoons, evenings, or weekends — depending on when instructors are available.
