Teaching Code4Life

Code4Life underway in Seattle.

Code4Life underway in Seattle.

It's that time of year again. Code4Life will be launching for the Fall 2018 semester in DC on Saturday, September. 

We'll be teaching in over 30 classrooms in Washington, DC, Seattle, Cleveland, and Baltimore, with around 400 students taking part in the program. That means we need instructors to cover all those classrooms.

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 AP computer science principles aligned curriculum. To see an overview of the curriculum, click here and here.

Our instructors generally come from one of 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...

If you know for sure you'd like to teach for us this fall, 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.
