Mission

Our mission is to provide the 5 Saturdays training and knowledge to people willing to build local communities populated with volunteer professionals who mentor students and expose them to a career in technology.

As individuals, we help people and groups learn to innovate and discover solutions to common and complex problems by emphasizing:

      • Continual discovery above instructions

      • Team collaboration above individualism

      • Positive inquiry above rhetorical questions

      • Respect for people above winning

We also focus on teaching students important life skills including:

      • Creative and critical thinking

      • Effective communication

      • Agility using Scrum and Kanban

      • Root cause analysis using “5 Whys”

There are other pathways, but our experiences inform us that we can use our cognitive surplus (available brain power) to coach people in our community to find a path to success.
