Who Are We?
Blockchains for Schools is a program to expose students to the blockchain space on a professional and intellectual level. The program runs throughout the school year and also has a fellowship during the summer. Blockchains for Schools is a spun out from Global Coin Research.
Blockchains for Schools is a program founded to provide high school students interested in blockchain and cryptocurrency around the world with mentors in the industry. This program is meant to expose the students to what it means to be a professional in the burgeoning blockchain space and enhance their knowledge in blockchain and cryptocurrency. We want the students who came to us for mentorship to walk away with deep insights into the blockchain space.
What Have We Done So Far?
We have gauged the interest of high school students in the top high schools in the country that are located in NYC: Stuyvesant High School, Bronx Science High School, Brooklyn Technical High School, and Hunter High School. We will be vetting these students to ensure the smoothest experience possible for both mentees and mentors.
We will soon expand the program to other high schools, colleges and nationwide.
As of right now, we intend to host general sessions once a month; each session will congregate as a group before splitting off into mentor-mentee pairs.
How Can We Help?
1. As of now, we are looking for local NYC mentors. We are still recruiting mentors; if you wish to take part in this program, please fill out the form on the site or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are outside of NYC and want to get involved, contact us below.
2. Monthly gathering space for mentors and mentees — We look to host about 80-100 people on a monthly basis.
3. Donation and Sponsorship — we are a non-profit organization and would love to discuss donation and sponsorship opportunities with you.
