Can I volunteer without having any coding experience?

Yes, you can help in the Personal Development or Ambassadors team. To join the Education team, you’ll need coding experience.

Can I join MENA Coding School as a volunteer and a student at the same time?

No! You can choose whether to join as a student or a volunteer. The duration of your role as a volunteer will be six months. After the first cohort, you can apply as a student.

How can I make sure that the weekly workshops for the students will meet my schedule?

You will be given the agenda a week before the session to choose the day that suits you.

How can I follow up with students?

Volunteers are in contact with students on a Slack channel for MENA Coding School.

How much time should I dedicate per week?

MENA Coding School gives you the flexibility you need. There are no restrictions regarding the time, and it depends on the role you will play in the program. However, commitment is a priority because the students really need your help. Some roles require two hours per week while others require seven hours.
