Become a Kids Programming Mentor

Think K-12 CS education is lacking?
Want to make a difference?

Join our team of 1-on-1 kids programming mentors in the Palo Alto area!

Breakout Mentors pairs experienced programmers to work directly with young, local students passionate about learning how to program – everyone from 10 year-olds making Scratch games to high schoolers making iPhone or Java games. This is a well paying part time job ($30 per hour) and an opportunity to make a lasting impact on a person’s life!

Our mentors meet weekly with each of their students for an hour and a half session spent working on fun projects. Each mentor works with two or three students – being a mentor is a three to five hours per week time commitment. Our goal is to foster the student’s long-term interest in programming, and since there is always more to learn, you can stay with the same student for months to years!
