Our mentorships program provides an avenue for women to connect and learn from each other.
It partners members of our community to help them navigate computer science at Harvard and beyond.

The WiCS Mentorships Program offers mentorships between Harvard undergraduates.  This program pairs over 200 mentors and mentees and offers mentorships-exclusive events in addition to more well-funded outings. With this program, mentees receive the opportunity to learn from and receive advice from an experienced upperclass student, and mentors have the chance to give back to the community at Harvard. (We also offer a more limited-scope alumni mentorship program)

Mentors and mentees are encouraged to meet at least once a month (on sponsored outings) and to participate in program-wide events to better get to know each other and the larger WiCS community.

Register for our Mentorships Program!  Mentees will be paired with a mentor in the WiCS community and benefit not only through learning from their assigned mentor, but by interacting with other mentors and mentees involved in the program.
