Thanks to the work of many volunteers, OpenTechSchool is able to offer free tech education to a wide range of learners. Volunteers contribute their time and share their knowledge to make OTS events a place where everyone can learn, connect and grow.

Join the movement by coaching learners, organizing events in your city or offering general support. If you have ideas on how to improve the learning experience, just come and tell us! OpenTechSchool is always looking for individuals who like to give back to the community.

Become a volunteer

If you are intersted in volunteering work, don't hesitate to contact us even if you are not sure how to contribute yet. Here are a few examples on how to volunteer, but there are so many more!


Become a coach

Coaches help to spread the fun of coding. They are not only supporting learners with the expertise and knowledge, they also try to create a friendly and welcoming environment at the events.

Read more about coaching at our coaching guidelines.

Organize a meetup

As an organizer you plan and schedule a meetup in your city, promote them and make sure there are enough coaches available.

Open a new chapter

If you are interested in organizing tech events or regular meetups for the community but your city doesn't have an OTS chapter yet, we can help you getting started.

Become a supporter

If you like what OpenTechSchool is doing, but you can't volunteer, there are other ways to support the initiative.

Maybe you have a space to offer or you want to sponsor the next event. If you are interested in a cooperation please get in touch.

Another way to support OpenTechSchool is to become a member of the foundation. By becoming a member you're actively supporting the community with your membership fees. Read more about a membership.
