Frequently Asked Questions


Are your mentors paid?
Nope. Every one of our mentors has chosen to volunteer their time. Why would they do that? Two reasons: they’re really passionate about software development and they’re just awesome people. We do have a mentor recognition program, where we pass on the praise our grads have for their mentors and throw in some rewards packages for your effort.

My employer has a community engagement program. Can I track my volunteer hours?
Yes! We'd be happy to verify your volunteer hours while mentoring!

If you have any further questions, please email us at apply@codelouisville.org!
