Course Mentors are a student's window into the world of software development and their strongest advocates along the way to getting there. In this role, your mission is to help the students become developers by answering questions, performing code review, and setting goals as part of a regular series of 1-3x weekly check-ins.
This is a great chance for you to make an impact in a student's life without needing to leave your engineering job (or your house). Check-ins are typically scheduled around working hours because the students often work as well and it is generally highly flexible.
As a course mentor, you also get the opportunity to connect with other great mentors and to speak to the full student group, allowing you to practice conference talks, discuss new projects or just impart wisdom on a broader scale.
Mentors are typically split between the front-end and back-end roles, though as a full-stack mentor you would be able to accompany a particular student through their entire journey.
