Take a New Web Developer Under Your Wing


help them master their craft and achieve their dreams.







How it works

  • Our code mentors take a student under their wing for 21 weeks, pair program with them for one-hour per week and guide them towards their personal coding goal.
  • Throughout each week, students work on building several web applications (think Yelp and Udemy clones), solve real-world coding challenges, starting from FizzBuzz all the way to Reversing Linked Lists, Depth First and Breadth First Search. Students then build a chess game web app using TDD as a team.


Get Serious Karma Points


Get endless karma points by leading motivated minds through our web development curriculum, designed to teach every student the necessary skills to be a full­ stack web developer.


As a Firehose Project mentor you will pair program, teach students how to build additional features on existing applications, help fix error messages, explain coding concepts and discuss best practices with your student.


We expect you to meet with each student for one hour per week for a total duration of 21 weeks.





Put Your Awesome Skills to Good Use


We know you’re really good at web development. Here’s what we place the most value on:


  • You’ve trained junior web developers before, love giving advice and feel good when you’re teaching somebody something new
  • Empathy for beginning web developers
  • You can ship a web app using Ruby, Rails and SQL with your eyes closed
  • You know ActiveRecord Relations in depth, understand OOP and can write algorithms

Get Something in Return


Being a role model and getting the eternal gratitude from countless Firehose Project students that graduated under your guidance is its very special and own reward, but a little bit of extra spending money in your pocket can’t hurt either.



Firehose Project mentors are paid generously on a per­ student fee for every hour­ long mentorship session.
