Volunteers/Mentors

You can make a big change in a teen’s life.

Join our amaz­ing vol­un­teer team! We seek pro­fes­sion­als who work with­in the tech sec­tor to inspire youth to explore a vari­ety career path­ways into technology. 

Vol­un­teers must be:

  • 23 or older
  • work with­in the tech sector
  • val­ue & embrace the LGBT+ Inclusion

Committed to Diversity

A group of diverse vol­un­teers is need­ed to ensure youth meet some­one they can see them­selves in. Diverse means gen­der, racial iden­ti­ties, skill lev­els, careers, age, and tech/​economic oppor­tu­ni­ties a vol­un­teer has had in their devel­op­ment into tech­nol­o­gy. It is impor­tant for Maven to find vol­un­teers that are reflect­ed of the youth we serve.
