What are Fiveable Squads? How do I participate in one?
Students that sign up for the Fiveable programs will have the opportunity to participate in teams of students to work together on weekly deliverables, action items, and for support. This will allow students to engage in conversation, receive help from teammates, build relationships, and create community as they learn. Squads will use both Hours by Fiveable and Discord to communicate asynchronously throughout their program.
Students will meet with their Squad each week to recap information they may have learned, share out deliverables that they've worked on, or ask questions! The general agenda of a Squad Meeting looks like this:
👥 Check-in Opener/Team Builder
📅 Week Recap
🙋🏻♀️ Group Activity/Share Out
🧩 Closing Activity
To join a squad, you'll fill out a form when you sign up for the program that you're in within the first 2-3 weeks. If you miss that window, not to worry! You can sign up as a free-agent for a squad by heading to our Discord and checking out the #free-agents channel for more info!
