Curriculum Development: If you are passionate about specific coding languages and want to help develop courses, the curriculum development team is for you! Many of our courses are actually outlined and created by students. Developers create the outline from scratch and the necessary presentations, project prompts, and solution codes. Subsequently, the developers would be consulted on most things regarding the new course and will play a large role in training new teachers as well.
Event Management: AiGoLearning has already hosted 2, very successful hackathons. These events require months of planning and preparation in multiple aspects, such as financial, outreach, and marketing efforts. Organizers gain value experience in these fields and working against the clock on a big project , as well as practice communicating with well respected organizations and individuals. Joining the event management team will help you gain valuable experience and help organize wonderful events.
STEM for All: Teens Teach Kids Coding (TTKC) is a nonprofit mission led by AiGoLearning that aims to bring the power of education to everyone through computer science. We provide free, high-quality, virtual coding courses to students from underprivileged and underrepresented groups in STEM*. We seek to partner with organizations such as local libraries, senior centers and non-profit organizations to spread our resources and reach people in need. We have courses for children aging from 5-15 years-old, from preschool/kindergarten level to high school level.
Girls Go Coding: Girls Go Coding is a non profit project which aims to give more access to girls so that they can learn their next essential life skill, coding! Young girls lack female STEM role models and environments in which they feel welcome. Girls Go Coding offers that through free, live, high quality coding classes. Classes are available to all children from 5 to 15! We are looking for people who share our enthusiasm for opening up the coding field to more girls, whether you can provide content, become a teacher, marketing, or just another point of view.
TTK Clubs: TTK Clubs is an AiGoLearning initiative that provides the guided opportunity to start a TTK Club (Teen Teach Kids) in your school or community as a high school student! Not only will you gain respect amongst others and add a leadership role (club president) to your resume and college application, but you will also gain the crucial experience of teaching others how to teach, create a warm teaching environment, interact with students, etc… all while increasing coding opportunities for the next generation of coders!

If you’d like to see what we’ve done so far, our articles are posted on medium at https://medium.com/aigolearning. We hope to see you soon!
AiGoLearning Junior Team (AJT): AJT works with students younger than the typical internship-age. Our team creates monthly practice problems for the students attending our classes, and other students too, to try out. This allows them to reaffirm their skills they learn in the classroom, expand upon their knowledge, and teach them the valuable skills of research, perseverance, and communication within our community of young students. AJT also works on teaching its members how to teach from a younger age, and starts them off as teacher assistants in real classrooms.
