Volunteers are needed to serve as coaches in a 3-hour morning core program for a week, or in 90-minute afternoon workshops for as many days as you would like.
There are three virtual camps currently scheduled for students all over California:
Build coaches will focus on guiding technology learning during the core course and should be familiar with or open to learning simple wiring and coding.
Social coaches will focus on administrative tracking and social learning during both the core course and afternoon or evening workshops.
Training and a stipend will be given for all coaching positions.

Applications for campers and coaches will be online this year and should begin soon.
We will be able to send at least 4 girls to virtual camp this year. Though the virtual camp costs less this year, there is an expectation that the fee for future residence camps will be rising. We are continuing to raise funds for Tech Trek. Any unused funds will be rolled over to the next year’s Tech Trek camp for our branch.
If you would like to donate,
Please make your check out to AAUW-CA SPF and write in “Tech Trek Petaluma Branch” on the memo line.
Please mail checks to: Michele Meyer, 2213 Mari Lane, Petaluma, CA 94954
