Helping people learn to program is an amazing experience.

People discussing programming in a fun conference room.

The most visible volunteer positions within RailsBridge are the workshop sponsors, organizers, teachers, and TAs. They make each workshop happen!

Want to teach?

Yay! Head over to the upcoming workshops page to see if one is coming up near you. If not, get in touch with your local chapter (or start one if it doesn't exist).

Want to organize?

Fantastic. Read through the organizing page and fill out our short interest form!

Want to host or sponsor?

That's awesome. Check out our information for hosts and Donor FAQ.
