Become a Friend in Tech!

Volunteering & Corporate Engagement

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, whiteboarding, and coding challenges.

Whether you're a web developer who can create a curriculum or a non-tech professional who can conduct mock interviews, there's a place for you in our Friends in Tech - Volunteer Initiative Program (VIP). 
The Friends in Tech - VIP 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
  • Cohort Naming Rights


"I have been fortunate to have multiple mentors and teachers throughout my engineering career who helped me grow into the successful technologist I am today. I volunteer at TKH to give back to my community and help mentor and tutor others, especially those under-represented in the tech community. I derive immense satisfaction from seeing the students spend time and dedication learning complex topics in accelerated time frames. I am also extremely proud of the students using their learnings to work on projects to help better their communities and the world."

Make a Difference as a Mentor

Mentors are essential to the success story of our fellows and alums. Your year-long, one-on-one commitment provides our Fellows with the technical and emotional support they need to advance their careers in tech.

Through advice, coaching, and relationship building, mentors empower and impact aspiring technologists' lives and help inspire young people who have been traditionally excluded from the digital economy.
