Mentor Resources

Empower girls to change the world through technology.

The resources available on this page will help you support Technovation Girls teams to complete the program, submit their project, and develop new skills. Click the category on the left side to get to a list of helpful materials 

Getting Started

Step 1: Complete your registration on my.technovationchallenge.org by finishing the mentor training, signing the consent form, completing background check (US only), and filling out your profile.

Step 2: Find a team to mentor! You can search for teams in your region/timezone and send requests to join the team. Make sure your profile is complete so the team can get to know you a bit before they accept your invite.

Step 3: Go through the curriculum and schedule your first team meeting to kick off the season! Remember: the curriculum is your handbook for coaching teams through the season.
