What is a Tech Fellow?

Tech Fellows (TF) are ambitious student leaders that are trained by CodePath to deliver successful CodePath courses to their peers. TFs volunteer to facilitate the sessions at their university and provide assistance to students during each class, while being fully supported by CodePath every step of the way. 

Tech Fellow volunteers play an important part in the success of our CodePath on-campus programs!

Hear from Our Tech Fellows

"I love being a part of CodePath as a tech fellow because the organization truly cares about sharing the important steps to be successful. I’ve met many inspirational people coming from the supervisors, tech fellows, and students parts of the network. As a facilitator, I’ve gained a better understanding of imposter syndrome and the various challenges different students face. I’m thankful for the lessons learned with CodePath."

"One of the best aspects of being a CodePath Tech Fellow is that we get to reinforce what we learn by teaching it immediately after. Even though I became an iOS Tech Fellow without any background in iOS development, there are always engineers and teachers to answer our questions and troubleshoot. The supportive community helped me reduce a lot of fear in getting into computer science as a woman."

"I love being a Tech Fellow because it allows me to interact with students that are just as passionate about Computer Science as me. Not only do I get to teach them, I am also learning so much from the questions that they ask! Furthermore, teaching is one of the hardest things I have ever done and this opportunity has allowed to gain so much more knowledge and experience on the subject."
