Become a Volunteer

ScriptEd’s courses are taught by software developers on a volunteer basis.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer teacher and making an impact in New York City, please apply.


What do we teach?

ScriptEd’s Foundations Course is a year long curriculum that introduces first-year students to the fundamentals of HTML, CSS and Javascript.

ScriptEd’s Advanced Course teaches advanced Javascript concepts to students who have completed the ScriptEd Foundations course.

Please take a look at our curriculum for further information.

How often are volunteers in the classroom?

ScriptEd classes are held twice weekly throughout the school year. Each class lasts for either an hour or an hour and a half. Based on your placement, you will be expected to teach during the school day (usually 8:00-9:30 AM) or during after-school hours (between 3:30 and 5:00 PM). A few of our classes are at other times — a ScriptEd staff member will work with you to find a placement that fits your schedule.


How many teachers are on each volunteer team?

To allow for flexibility in your volunteer commitment, we place approximately 4 volunteers at each school. Each class session will have a designated Lead Volunteer.

Can I volunteer in San Francisco?

Yes! We’re piloting our program in San Francisco in 2017. If you’re interested in getting involved, fill out a San Francisco New Volunteer application at
