You will contribute to improving the lives of others through tech education
You will become better expert of your own craft by teaching your knowledge
You will be exposed to different cultures and different ways of thinking & working
You will become a part of Migracode’s professional network, including tech Meetups, companies, NGO’s and other professional developers
Starting a mentorship journey implies that you'll also finish it. We don't finish journeys somewhere in between.
At least one offline meeting* is encouraged. Mentoring is about both online and offline meetings.
Feedback to both HYF-staff and your mentee is key.
If you can't do offline meetings because of physical mobility reasons, we respect that. If you let us know, we can ask another mentor to take over for your offline meeting.
