What is a mentor?


Code Louisville mentors are:

  • Software developers working in the industry
  • Volunteers who are responsive, humble, collaborative, and committed
  • Skilled in the track for which they mentor

What does it take to be a mentor?


To be a mentor, you need to:

  • Attend and be involved with a weekly in-person meetup (6:00 - 8:00 pm) one night per week
  • Adhere to the Code of Conduct
  • Work with other mentors to help your class stay on track, involved, and interested in learning to program
  • Virtually mentor on Slack - check in a few times each week to see if your class has any questions

Frequently Asked Questions


Are your mentors paid?
Nope. Every one of our mentors has chosen to volunteer their time. Why would they do that? Two reasons: they’re really passionate about software development and they’re just awesome people! We've got an active community of volunteer mentors, eager students, and long-time graduates helping each other succeed and be passionate about technology.

My employer has a community engagement program. Can I track my volunteer hours?
Yes! We'd be happy to verify your volunteer hours while mentoring!
