Get Involved


Every year, mentors – industry CIOs, business leaders, i.c.stars graduates and community members – help make our mission possible by giving their time to provide needed support for our training program and special events. In addition to supporting i.c.stars |* COLUMBUS and our program participants, mentoring also allows high tech leaders to shape future talent and community members to support our graduates who give back through their leadership efforts.

Speak at High Tea

i.c.stars’ High Tea is an innovative volunteer opportunity for busy senior executives to make a strong impact on young technology talent. High tech leaders share their journey to success, impressing upon our interns the importance of perseverance and setting short- and long-term goals. This inspirational hour is one of the greatest strengths of our training program.
