INNER CITY KIDS SHADOWING ANGELHACKERS
NEW YORK CITY - JUNE 23 2012
12 students + 12 teams
Give a high school student the opportunity to see how you
You could change someone's life just by
letting them come see what it's like to be you.
About our kids
12 high school students from Democracy Prep Charter School
in Harlem will be selected to spend the afternoon with the
hackers of angelHack. Our kids are sophomores and juniors with
curiosity and passion for software development, but who have no
access to computer science courses at school.
We need your team!
What you can expect: a student will shadow your team for a
couple of hours while you're working on your hack. They'll be
there to observe only, not to pester you. By hosting
a student for the afternoon, you'll be giving them a window into
a future they can get excited about.
To qualify you must:
Have a team of 3+ people
Be registered for angelHack
Not be creepy or a jerk
Time to register for angelHack!
You can't volunteer to have a student shadow your team unless you're
registered for angelHack first. But fear not! AngelHack is a ton of fun
and registration takes less than a minute.
