Here’s What Our Volunteers Have to Say About the Experience

Seeing the students gleam with a sense of accomplishment, I realized that I’d contributed to something big—an effort to help the future generation explore its potential. The experience was incredibly rewarding, and I’m thankful to Oracle and OEF for the opportunity.”

—Vineet Mishra, Senior User Experience Designer, Oracle

The experience of coaching students in OEF classes is priceless. The learning goes both ways—you learn from the students and they learn from you. Not to mention the joy of discovering new things together, culminating in a finished prototype in just two weeks. Priceless!”

—Margaret Errington, Senior Principal Partners Manager, Oracle

I really enjoy the looks on the students’ faces when they finally figure something out, and the creative insight that happens when designing something that has not existed before.”

—Bill Ward, Consulting Member of Technical Staff, Development Operations, Oracle

I love it when I’m able to help young people learn more about technology. Volunteering for OEF is always such a fun experience.”

—Chi Nguyen, Applications Engineer, Oracle





As an OEF coach, watching the students explore, stumble, and grow while they worked their way through the design challenges, and then seeing them proudly present their projects to friends and family at the end of the session was just such a rewarding experience.”

—Glen Walton, Senior Manager, Fusion Applications Strategy, Oracle
