TechShop Testers!
Looking for volunteers to help us ensure our lesson plans have enough details for new volunteers to use with ease. Volunteers will choose a topic they have some background knowledge on, but are *not* an expert in. They will run through (‘test’) the lesson plan at home and complete all student activities listed. Lastly, they will make note and notify us of any areas they had difficultly following or where more direction is needed.

Join our Social Committee
Looking for volunteers to join our newly formed Social Committee. This committee would attend MeetUps, Local Happy Hours, and different events to socialize with other technology professionals. Through these connections, the volunteer will spread the word about TechGirlz. Any potential leads will be reported back to TechGirlz.
