Become a Mentor
Who Are Mentors?
Mentors are professionals who feel comfortable supporting teams of girls to participate in the program and helping their teams become leaders. They learn with their teams and help them problem solve, while also supervising girls through their journey.
- Mentors can be teachers, parents, community leaders, or professionals.
- Mentors do not need to be tech professionals (although it’s great if you do have tech expertise!)
- Mentors can work with a local team in-person, or be a virtual mentor to a team anywhere in the world

What You’ll Need:
You’ll need a team of up to 5 amazing girls to mentor. While working with a team isn’t required for students, we believe the Technovation Challenge is more educational, inspirational, and all-around fun experience if approached as a group. Connect with a team online after you register, or recruit other girls in your area!
About 50 hours over the season; recruit and supervise students, coordinate speakers and meeting space, ensure internet and computer access, and oversee teams as they complete the curriculum.
