Mentor Monday: Meet Sarah

Meet long-time Bold Idea mentor Sarah Sahibzada, a software consultant at Pariveda Solutions. “Throughout my time at Bold Idea, I’ve worked at transforming my mentorship from ‘teach people and help them to avoid making the same mistakes you’ve made’ to ‘understand the needs and goals of each person and help them get there’.”

Meet Bold Idea Mentor Jared

Jared Hensley is a full-stack Javascript developer at Connexions Loyalty. Those skills came in handy this fall when he volunteered as a mentor in Bold Idea’s Creative Computing program. Many of the older elementary elementary students he worked with were experienced coders and took up the challenge of creating mobile apps using Javascript.
