Summer Of Code 2018: $299 per year, or $29 per month – if you signed up before or during SOC18 you are Grandmothered in at this price forever, as long as your payments are on time and you are in good standing
Winter Of Data 2019: see below, we will open memberships once all certificates have been awarded to SOC18 first. $499 per year.
It is likely that prices will go up with each year for new members, because we were told we are giving these away too cheaply by the non-profit and entrepreneurship business accelerators. To give you a comparison, when I used to be an Instructor at HackReactor Remote, the Harvard of bootcamps, a 12 week program cost between $15,000 – $28,000 (depending on payment plans) and students would get less live interaction with technical staff than JUST ONE of our 12 week programs. For the Gold Membership you get a WHOLE YEAR’s worth of access.
However, we recognize that HackReactor and the other larger technology course providers are much more mature, they have solid customer service, good processes, and are sophisticated. We are just a volunteer run non-profit in its first year of providing programs, so there is still a lot to mature, grow, build, and solidify until you can get a comparable “product and service”. However, I don’t like this term “service” or “product” because we are NOT selling “products or services.”. 1MWTT is based on volunteers, we don’t sell products, our goal is not to earn money, our goal is to give opportunity to millions of women in the whole world to learn, to change their career, to get an internship, a job. This is what we do. And this is how everyone should see us. See FAQ #5.
So until then we start low, and each time slowly increase prices, allowing women to be Grandmothered in at every stage so that you can stay at your current rate as long as you remain a Member.
- Must be a woman or non-binary, we reserve the right to turn away anyone we cannot confirm or find it difficult to
- Abide by the Community Rules, Zero Tolerance Non-Harrassment Policy, No-Unapproved Cross Promotion Policy
- Non-Refundable Magic – In the world of hard cold cash we turn your donations into opportunities. We take soulless objects and turn them into real-deal live-changing success stories. And yes, we don’t have a refund policy for magic. See Unique Philosophy #3.
How to become a Gold Member
Gold Members are the pillars of the 1 Million Women To Tech Community: only 2,000 active Gold Members’ dues are enough to support the free education of 1 million women world-wide, many of whom have written to us to say they don’t even have a credit card in their country (e.g. Sudan, Syria among others). HH Dalai Lama said “it will be women who will save the world.” I believe he also said something about women with education and resources, because they will have the ability and the funds to effect change. This is You, Gold Members and Prospective Gold Members.
We not accepting Gold Members at the moment, until we have enough womanpower to deliver on the benefits to our existing Gold Members, especially making sure that all Gold Members who joined for Summer Of Code 2018 get all their certificates for their coursework and homework submissions.
If you are interested in a Gold Membership, please express your interest below (you need to be logged in). This interest form will be open from Monday Jan 14 (the start of Winter Of Data 2019) until March 8 (International Women’s Day). We will open Gold Memberships and accept 500 new Gold Members once the certificates have been all issued.
