JerseySTEM Girls Who Code Clubs are led by Facilitators, who are 18+ and can be computer scientists, parents, college students or volunteers from any STEM background or field. Our Club Facilitators guide Club girls through the curriculum , helping them to build sisterhood within the Club and learn to use computer science to impact their community.
Clubs are run by 2-4 facilitators and are supported by our curriculum team and provided training as they join.

Coaches coach about 2 hours per week for 10-12 weeks - usually a spring semester and/or fall semester. Up front there is about 2 hours of on boarding and training, plus a background check. There is an hour long conference call or meeting with training manager that happens prior to the first club meeting, where we make sure you are prepared, know where to go, etc. And during the semester you can expect to have weekly or biweekly "check ins" as needed where you can provide feedback, resolve issues, answer questions with someone at JerseySTEM. The commute to/from the club site is in addition to the club meeting time, but generally not more than 15-20 min. We tend to start clubs in mid-September to early Oct; and again end of January or early February.
