Basic Requirements:

To become a mentor, you should be 19 years or older, have coding skills, and enjoy working with teens aged 12 to 18. If you have experience in this area, it’s a plus! Additionally, while most activities in the programming world happen in English, good German skills are advantageous, as many participants do not speak English fluently (yet). Additionally, you need a current extended police clearance certificate. Once you’ve signed up, we’ll guide you through the process and let you know everything you need to know and do.

Programming Skills:

The goal is to provide participants with a wide range of support. That’s why we’re looking for a group of mentors with diverse skill sets and experiences in programming, creating a friendly and supportive environment for everyone involved. But you don’t have to be a pro in all things coding – everyone’s there to help each other out.

It’s very important to us to enable everyone to participate. Therefore, feel free to contact us at ffm@jugendhackt.org if there are any restrictions or obstacles for you regarding the event. We are more than happy to work together to find a solution.

What you get from us:

In return for your voluntary work, we offer you:

  • a free pedagogical-didactic training as part of the mentor briefing
  • networking opportunities with other developers and creative coders from all over Germany
  • a fantastic atmosphere, lots of experience, and the participants’ grateful smiles
  • little sleep
  • plenty of mate (the caffeinated soft drink)
  • eternal gratitude from the teams of NODE, the Open Knowledge Foundation Germany, and mediale pfade
