Our volunteers help us carry out our mission of empowering and sustaining a talent pipeline of young technologists and digital leaders. TKH has partnered with numerous industry professionals with varying spheres of influence within the tech space. These volunteers offer professional development, mentoring, and interview preparation. Technical volunteers support fellows with study sessions, white-boarding, and coding challenges.
Whether you’re a web developer who can create curriculum or a non-tech professional who can conduct mock interviews, there’s a place for you in our Volunteer Initiative Program (VIP).
The VIP program is also open to corporations interested in volunteering and sponsorship opportunities. Each year, TKH invites corporations to sponsor our fellows' program needs like technology, internet access, and cash assistance. Sponsor benefits include brand recognition, volunteering and hiring engagements, access to thought-leadership events, speaking opportunities, and cohort naming rights. Committed partners are invited to represent their companies on our Tech Advisory Board. To learn more email Derrick Stroman at firstname.lastname@example.org or sign up below!
