Mentorship

META+LINK offers three kinds of mentorship opportunities for participating members. The Pathfinder and Summer Immersive programs are free to enrolled CSUN students.

Pathfinder:

October - May

The Pathfinder Program is a two-semester META+LAB course that introduces students from all disciplines and majors to web development, preparing students to work at META+LAB and beyond. Pathfinder students choose a track in either Front-End Development, Back-End Development or Development Operations. As alumni mentors, you will have the opportunity to inspire prospective students and introduce relevant topics to students in the program in a group setting.

Summer Immersive:

June

The Summer Immersive is a two-week accelerated bootcamp that reviews and builds upon topics covered in the Pathfinder Program, while testing students’ knowledge of front-end development, back-end development, or development operations. Alumni mentors will have the opportunity to share their knowledge and experience, and interact with Immersive students in a group setting.

META+LAB student creators develop pioneering technology products for various clients throughout the year. As alumni mentors, you will have the opportunity to select an eligible product in current development, and work with a respective team according to your area of expertise.
