Female mentors who would like to be involved in any capacity are welcomed. For example: speaker, inspirational stories, programming assistance, workshop activity, business models, general volunteer.

Girls will be in teams of 4-5. If girls request to be with their teammates we will do our best to accommodate their requests, but we cannot make guarantees.
