What’s the ChickTech Mentorship Program?

  • The 8-month Mentorship Program pairs girls in our High School Program with professional women in the Austin area. Each student is matched with a mentor who will help her explore careers in technology and set educational goals.
  • The program runs from February to October, during which you’ll meet with your mentee on a regular basis. Together, you’ll explore exciting STEM activities sponsored by ChickTech or hosted by the Austin-area tech community.
  • As a mentor, you’ll help your mentee work towards her educational and career goals. While your relationship focus will be on building a sense of belonging in tech, you are encouraged to explore your shared interests and hobbies as well.

What are the requirements to apply?

  • Self-identify as a woman
  • Be at least 21 years of age
  • Have at least 1 year of work experience
  • Have access to reliable transportation

Computer programming experience is NOT required! We welcome women from all career backgrounds who are interested in supporting young women in tech.
