September 2020 was the initial launch of the Microsoft Learn Student Ambassador (MLSA) Peer Mentorship program and today, we embark on a new journey to go global. This 12-week initiative is driven by a Cloud Advocate, collaborating with Student Ambassadors to address 3 key pillars which are: -
1. To Welcome the student developer community into the tech space through virtual on-demand technical workshops,
2. To Guide the participants through group mentorship, where every participant is assigned to a group managed by an ambassador to promote individual career growth and lastly, 3. To Connect participants to various resources, student opportunities and Microsoft products

For the next 3 months, our community will facilitate weekly technical project-based workshops (leveraging GitHub, VS Code & Microsoft Azure) in the following tracks:
If you weren't able to secure an application for this cohort, do not worry as we invite everyone on the internet interested in attending our technical upskill workshops. To join the sessions, follow us on twitter to get notified when our sessions are live.
