As with any nonprofit organization, volunteers are an important part of the GRCIE mix. What they are able to add is often more valuable than any other contribution. There is no substitute for the lasting benefit that positive human interaction can have. And that is why we seek and welcome volunteers to work with and possibly mentor our students.
We welcome volunteers with all kinds of backgrounds and skills but, of course, have the greatest need for individuals with knowledge of and experience with cybersecurity. The insight that can be shared is something that is not likely to be gained from any other source. The benefit to our students goes far beyond what any formal lesson can impart.
We are always looking for volunteers! Are you a Cybersecurity professional and want to help?
Lend your expertise to teach a class or speak to our students!
Become a mentor to one of our students.
Become a community partner.
Anyone with industry experience willing to gift their time to our students! Cybersecurity professionals willing to teach, human resources professions willing to help our students get interview-ready, and marketing professionals willing to help our students polish their personal brands can immediately make an impact.
I owe most of my success to my mentors who were instrumental in shaping me, and I want to share that.
Building the highest performing, most innovative teams in the industry requires reprogramming of our performance DNA to become relentlessly focused on ‘thinking differently’ about failure. My mentor taught me that.
Every single opportunity we’re presented with gives us an opportunity to learn, grow, be inspired — and share that with others.
