Sankofatech’s Achievers in Technology (AIT) is a rigorous four-year scholarship and mentorship program that aims to produce the next generation of African technology professionals in the United States. We believe technology is not the preferred career path for youth of African descent due to lack of knowledge about the industry, community misconception (i.e., not perceived as prestigious), and lack of access to resources. We aim to tackle these problems through the AIT program. AIT scholars go through a rigorous four-year program that equips them with essential skills and access to a network of like-minded peers, mentors, advisors, and accomplished professionals in the tech industry. The AIT mentor and coach will provide academic and career support as well as be the scholars first point of contact in any aspect relating to their future in technology.
AIT Academic Coach
As an AIT Academic Coach, your primary responsibility is to provide tutoring and educational support to scholars to help them succeed academically. In addition, you may also support scholars on extracurricular projects. You will form part of an academic coaching team, where each coach will take turns in providing such assistance. Our team will partner with you and the academic coaching team and provide additional resources and support needed to effectively work with the scholars.
