About Our Tech Fellow Program

Become a Campus Leader

Tech Fellows are ambitious student leaders trained by CodePath to help launch our remote courses to students nationwide. This paid opportunity is exclusively available to students who complete a CodePath course.

Tech Fellows help CodePath build community at their campuses, facilitate breakout rooms and assist students during each class while being fully supported by CodePath at every step.

Tech Fellows play an essential part in the success of CodePath's programs. As a Tech Fellow, you could strengthen your school's CS resources by exposing our industry courses to your peers.

"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 was so impressed by the opportunities that CodePath offers that I chose to become a Tech Fellow the following quarter to teach other students the things I have learned and to expose them to the amazing opportunities that CodePath has to offer. Coming from a low-income background, opportunities are often harder to come by but CodePath has opened their knowledge and expertise for free to students like me who would otherwise not have the chance to do so and I am grateful for that.

"After I finished [CodePath's] iOS course, I was working hand in hand with my professor. He really liked the project I was working on, and he told me about the Tech Fellow opportunity. He could tell I really enjoyed the course, and because I was a prior student, I knew and understood what other students were looking for in the course. I was willing to fill in that role for students and not only help students with the technical stuff, but also provide mentorship. I built a lot of relationships, and I reinforced concepts [for myself] by explaining them to others. So it was a great experience for me."

CUNY - Hunter College

"I'm proud to have been able to teach cybersecurity as a Tech Fellow for CodePath during my last semester. Being a first generation college student, I was very nervous to come back to school, let alone navigate a competitive job market after graduation. I had a fear of failure that held me back from taking on new challenges. I enrolled in my first CodePath course to feed my curiosity of cybersecurity. I then started teaching what I learned in cybersecurity to other student's at my school. I ended up finding a community of like-minded people who were willing to work hard to achieve their goals. This gave me a way to develop my skills and confidence by continuing to push my own boundaries. I'm very grateful for these experiences. I'm also excited to graduate and start my first full-time software engineer position in August. I hope other students at Hunter will continue to carry the baton forward and participate in CodePath programs/lead cohorts."
