Code4Life, an after-school program that teaches basic computer programming skills to K-12 students from underrepresented backgrounds, will be launching for the spring semester in Seattle on January 6, 2018. We are seeking instructors to teach our curriculum at our participating schools in the Seattle area.

Our instructors generally come from three places: they are either graduate students or upper-level undergrads in computer science, or professional software developers practicing in the field, though we welcome potential instructors from other walks of life...

Code4Life differs from other coding programs such as Girls Who Code in that we use a paid instructor model. That means we go out and recruit, hire and train our instructors then send them to our participating schools to teach our curriculum, which is aligned to the AP computer science principles. To see an overview of the first unit of the curriculum, click here.

If you would like to apply to teach Code4Life, fill out our instructor questionnaire. It will provide us with all the information we need, and we'll be in touch with you within 48 hours of receiving it.

If you'd like to learn more about teaching for us, check out the one page flyer called: Do Good. Get Paid.

If you have any questions or would like to know more, email dave.oberting@code4life.us.
