Mentoring students is one of the roles that I play at Geekulcha. At Geekulcha students are committed to learn, connect, share and put skills to work. One of the best way to give back to the community of “geeks” is to share what you have acquired. In fact, mentoring high school students has caught my attention in teaching, since them I appreciated all the efforts put together to allow us to share within the community.
I have mentored students during the Vacation Work Programme, building ICT solutions for the problems they face at their communities.
