Apply to be a TechTank Mentor

Technology has the potential to level the playing field, but we need your help.

TechTank is a new program from Thicket Labs that connects aspiring young technologists from all over New York City with industry professionals working in the tech industry for flexible mentorship. You'll be joining mentors from Spotify, Vimeo, and MongoDB who are making change at their companies from the ground up.

Apply to teach aspiring young New Yorkers about building a career in tech.
Why should you sign up to be a TechTank Mentor?

Flexible mentorship means you can sign up for one-session, two-session, or three-month packages - whatever fits your schedule.

Your mentorship experience kicks off at TechTank Demo Day, where you'll meet your mentee, enjoy delicious bites, great giveaways, and plan out your mentorship sessions.

Our talent matching algorithm creates mentor and mentee pairs optimized for a more successful experience.

Mentees learn first-hand what it really takes to get started in the tech industry. Mentors pave the way for a more inclusive tech industry.

As a mentor, you'll get started at TechTank Demo Day February 4th at ThoughtWorks NYC and meet other people committed to building a stronger tech industry in New York City.
