For New York City-based Crypto folks, our Blockchains for Schools Mentorship Program have officially started accepting applications for mentors for the school year. 

Our first mentor and mentee event will take place on September 29th, Saturday at the Airswap office. This is courtesy of Airswap, our Platinum Sponsor.

The mentees are 40 high school students from all over New York City, and each of them has gone through a rigorous interview process to make sure that they have a basic understanding of blockchain.

The program meetup will take place once a month, on a weekend, for 1.5 hours in the city. You will be matched with a mentee once you fill out this application here, it literally takes 1 minute.

We want to build something long-lasting. Help us, and help you, to build a supportive crypto community here. We look forward to seeing you at the meetup.
