Who can be a member at C4T?
Motivated and passionate high school students who meet the qualifications above and can carry out the responsibilities above! Coding experience is not required for most positions! (In fact, we need more people who have skills like graphic design, marketing, documentation, public relations, etc.)
Will I be interviewed to be a member at C4T?
Yes, we interview all prospective members.
What's the difference between a member and a teacher?
A member is a volunteer who is part of C4T and helps to run the organization. For example, a C4T member can develop curriculum for our courses or run our seasonal classes. Members have a more intense, long-term commitment.
A teacher is a volunteer who is chosen by C4T to teach for one of our seasonal class sessions. Teachers are thus not officially part of C4T, but they are essential to our mission.
Can I earn volunteer hours? How do I get them certified?
Yes! We can certify your hours with an e-certificate and we can also provide the Presidential Volunteer Service Award (PVSA) if you are eligible. If you need to get your hours certified, check out Volunteer Hours.
It is the responsibility of each individual teacher to record their own hours. Hours cannot be certified without proof in the form of those records.
