Resources to Guide You
Facilitators lead students through the EFTW experience, helping them uncover technical skills and connect with Facebook Engineers. From teachers and librarians to after-school and non-profit volunteers, facilitators are 18+, come from any background or field and require no technical experience. We provide the resources to guide facilitators through the curriculum.
Facilitators as Product Leaders
Our facilitators are our Product Leaders! We have built a community to ensure all facilitators are supported from preparing for your first session to engaging with Facebook Engineers and running an impactful Sprint.
Together our facilitators learn with their students as they build a working prototype, lead discussion and build community with fellow facilitators in our Facebook Group.
The EFTW Program Timeline is a roadmap for our three-week sprint cycle, providing details on how each week is broken down and how facilitators can best prepare.
Product Leader Guide
Each project will include a specific EFTW Product Leader Guide so that educators can facilitate activities to support participants work. Check out our project page to find each corresponding guide!
Getting Started Webinar
We host an EFTW Getting Started Webinar to address how facilitators can prepare for their sprint, outlining expectations, opportunities, and outcomes of the program. Sign up for a sprint to gain access to the webinar.
