2022 Summer Instructor applications are open

Apply by the priority deadline: January 3rd, 2022

Kode With Klossy, in partnership with Teach For America, is looking for instructors to lead its 2022 summer coding camps. We look for logical thinkers, quick learners, and instructors who love working with others. Most of all, we are looking for instructors who see the best in others, and can bring fun, passion and excitement to the classroom to motivate the next generation of tech leaders. 

In the summer of 2022, we'll be teaching thousands of young women and gender nonconforming individuals, ages 13-18, the principles of website and mobile app development, software engineering, and data analytics. We teach our scholars real tools (HTML, CSS, Javascript, Swift, Python, SQL) and aim for them to leave our programs with new skills, increased confidence and a sense of accomplishment. In addition to teaching technical skills, instructors will lead important discussions about the gender gap in tech and foster an inclusive and supportive community.
