Description

Hello Everyone,

Last year, I had created a non-profit organization called CodeUnited Global, and currently, I am looking for students from grades 9 to 12 (students who will be in high school next year) who would be interested in applying for the Executive Team for the 2020 - 2021 year. 

Our website is: https://www.codeunitedglobal.org/

The form to apply is: https://forms.gle/1FAWBbbu6vcrRprN9 

This form includes the links to our website, email, and a document with information about each position. The form closes on July 1st at 11:59 pm PST.

CodeUnited Global is a non-profit organization created to help girls from grades 1 to 12 from across the world to become familiar with computer programming. We are reaching out to schools across the world, who have students who are girls with access to the internet and computers but do not have enough means to continue their education in Computer Science as they are not exposed to it or encouraged to pursue it. Although there are many organizations trying to encourage and teach girls to join the field of Computer Science, we are specifically reaching out to girls who are in areas where they are not taught Computer Science. We give them direction and guidance in this career path by teaching basic programming skills. We teach them through online video calls. Generally, in remote areas of the world, we see that girls are not encouraged to continue their education in such fields, but our goal is to break such norms. If we can help them achieve their dreams by supporting them in such a way, we should. 

If you have any questions, please feel free to email codeunitedglobal@gmail.com, and don't forget to like our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/codeunitedglobal/ and follow our Instagram https://www.instagram.com/codeunitedglobal/. Thank you for your time!

  • Must be available at least once a week for meetings and must be respectful and professional in all meetings
  • No background in Computer Science is required for these specific positions in the Executive Team

Executive Team Positions:

1. Head Of Communications:

  • Will reach out to different schools from across the world, those who have students who are girls who have internet access and their own laptops but are not familiar with Computer Science
  • Must keep track and always check notifications from the website and our email

2. Public Relations:

  • As we aim to help students from areas of the world who do not have a background in Computer Science, a big part of helping them is to continue to teach them by giving them the best resources to learn. In order to do this, we need a treasurer who keeps track of our GoFundMe account and can also host different events in order to raise money to get our students the best resources.
