Mentor 🛳️ Ship

6 weeks of mentoring. 30 minutes per week. 150+ concepts to learn.

For Captains

The program pairs professional engineers with members of the Syracuse public who are looking to learn or to break into the industry. The six week program involves a mentor committing to a trainee for a 30 minute per week Zoom. The engagement involves 2-4 hours per week of a mentor’s time when including planning and review.

CodeSyracuse provides me with everything I need to share my passion for coding with others -- whether it's matching me with mentees, providing feedback and resource, or the support network of other mentors.

Mentorship is a unique chance for self-reflection, growth, and relationship building with your mentee. I am priviledged to be a part of it with CodeSyracuse!

For Passengers

The program allows any person of any skill level to learn from a professional. That means the getting an education on a topic that matters to you from a starting point that is appropriate to the situation you are in. That means participating in the digital world as a producer, not a consumer.

Hey Peter! Happy New Year 😊

Owe you a long overdue thanks. The mentorship with Cappetta you set me up with really helped me focus myself and land a job.
