Get with the Program partners with schools and businesses to deliver exciting tech learning events. Our mission is to inspire today’s students to become the tech innovators of the future.
Take a look at the two minute clip above for an insight into what we do and and just one example of how your organisation can get involved. It’s a fantastic opportunity to give back to the community and encourage children to start an exciting learning journey in technology - preparing today's students for tomorrow's workplaces.
Your or your organisation can be involved through financial sponsorship, volunteering or content development - see below for the details. We'd love to talk to you to explain more so please get in touch if you'd like to be part of it all.
Would you like to join us in our mission? Large or small scale financial support enables us to create and deliver new virtual and in-person events and reach potentially thousands of children.
Some of our sponsors choose to finance a single event at a school nearby or one with which they have a connection.
Local businesses often sponsor multiple events for a number of schools in their area, providing much needed support for their community. This is highlighted in our follow-up communications to parents.
We also have broader sponsorship options available which can be combined with volunteering and content development.
Please contact us to find out more about how your organisation can get involved.
Would you like to help us run our events? Our pool of volunteers includes enthusiastic individuals and business co-ordinated community programmes, and we’ve had some lovely feedback about how fun and rewarding it is to facilitate our workshops.
We give full training, which can include first exposure to a new programming language or even a first ever look at programming. Some of our activities don’t even use a computer, so you can pick the one that suits you best!
We ensure that all volunteers understand and agree to implement our child-protection policy, and have DBS checks in place or in process where required. Our volunteers are never expected to be solely responsible for children, as school teaching staff should be with them at all times.
If you'd like to volunteer with us, give back to the community and learn some new skills along the way please get in touch - we'd love to hear from you!
Would you like to help create something new? We have tons of ideas for new events just waiting to be developed! Your organisation could help us develop one of our existing ideas or work with us to create one of your own.
And if you want variety and creativity you're in the right place! You could be devising programming activities, helping with our graphic design or costume making. It might involve working closely as part of a supportive team, or using your skills remotely to build coding solutions.
Whether your input is through a business co-ordinated community programme or as an individual, your support will always be appreciated and valued, and we'd love to welcome you to our team!
