The Moringa Fellowship will span 11 weeks, beginning on July 6, 2020. Mentors will work directly with a Product Management, Product Design, or Software Engineering fellow, who will work with their cohort to address the health, social, and economic consequences caused by COVID-19 through a digital product solution.
All mentors will be expected to commit up to 10 hours each week, though you'll likely spend less time than that week-over-week. Additionally, schedules will be flexible and agreed upon with all fellows and mentors during the first week.
The application deadline is June 15th, 2020 at 11:59PM (PST). The application process will involve filling out a short form online. Then, we will select mentors, prioritizing those who identify similarly to our selected fellows.
As a mentor, you'll work directly with your respective fellow, as they work with their cohort to address a COVID-related problem through a digital product solution.
You'll spend your time getting to know your fellow and establishing rapport; providing technical guidance and giving feedback; and facilitating the project and holding the cohort accountable for their work.
You'll be expected to commit up to 10 hours each week.
Will I be compensated?
Unfortunately, this is a volunteer-run organization. As such, mentors will also be volunteers.
I can’t meet the time commitment. How else can I get involved?
We're planning to host lighter-touch, mentorship opportunities throughout the program, including coffee chats and panels. If you're interested in participating, please fill out this form.
