About this event

This is not a meetup; this is a meeting for volunteering with or assisting Girl Develop It. If you're interested in coming to a meetup, checkout Code and Coffee!

Interested in becoming more involved with Girl Develop It Chicago? Please join us for our first Core Team member planning session. This event is for people who’ve expressed interest in being more involved with GDI Chicago as an instructor, TA, other volunteer, host, or sponsor. At the meeting we’ll discuss how you can help GDI and get you up-to-speed on what's going on with the chapter.

This meeting is very casual! We'll meet at Wheelhouse on the corner of Southport and Addison, which is easily accessible from the Brown and Red lines. 

To give you an idea of how you can help GDI Chicago, here are a few roles we're looking to fill:


• Ruby, Rails
• JavaScript, JavaScript frameworks
• PHP 
• Java 
• Design (UI/UX/Mobile/Wireframing) 
• Mobile app development (iOS or Android) 
• Career planning (resume/interviews/recruiting) 
• Anything else that you want to teach! If you want to teach it, there’s probably someone who wants to learn it! 


We love to bring in speakers to discuss all sorts of topics including career planning, industry trends, new technologies, etc. Throw a topic at us, it's probably great! Email is ok if you're interested in this: chicago@girldevelopit.com


Each instructor needs some help! TAs are there to assist the instructor during class so students can get the help they need. We are looking for TAs for all the topics listed above.

Event Organizers

As an event organizer, you'll help with planning, coordinating, and hosting classes, workshops, and meetups. We're looking for people who are interested in hosting regular or semi-regular meetup events (similar to Code and Coffee) as well as general volunteers.    

Sponsors and Hosts

Does you have a conference room you're not using? Equipment you're looking to donate? Interested in sponsoring students or the local chapter? We are always looking for more spaces to host classes and meetups!

We will discuss in detail the duties of each role and how you can help out. If you have an idea for a core member we’re not listing - feel free to attend and make the suggestion! 

We will be making specific assignments at this meetup, so if you are unable to attend, but very interested in a position please email chicago@girldevelopit.com before hand so we can make sure you’re accounted for.
