Goal statement 
With the guidance and support of Google and the UC Center for Community Engagement (CCE), we were able to develop the Bearcat Coders program. Our chapter’s goal was to ensure that the University of Cincinnati tapped into their longstanding partnership with Hughes High School to bring tutoring and mentoring in Information Technology to the students at Hughes STEM. Many volunteers from the University of Cincinnati tutor and mentor 9th - 11th grade students at Hughes STEM High school during their IT/CS Programming and Web Design classes.

Activity Description 

Volunteers from the University of Cincinnati tutor and mentor 9th-11th grade students at Hughes STEM High school during their IT/CS Programming and Web Design classes. This experience has allowed our mentors and mentees to thrive because helping others is the key to self-learning and serving the community in the best possible way. The mentors assist students in developing software and IT projects that are showcased in a celebration and presentation event at the end of the school year.

Progress On Activity 
More than 70 UC undergraduate students participated in the Bearcat Coders program in the academic year 2015-16.
