Project Research - Documenting Organizations with Technical Needs
Every month, dozens of volunteers attend the Code for Philly (CfP) 101 event, bringing with them a diverse set of technical and leadership skills. Similarly, every month, many organizations reach out to CfP about creating projects. However, two big challenges remain.
- There may be many organizations that don’t know starting a CfP can help connect them with technical volunteers
- They may need help in laying out a clear project, in order to recruit volunteers.
For this (“meta”) project, we will set out to document the technical needs of non-profit organizations, so that they can sync effectively with CfP volunteers.
Meeting on January 22nd at the CfP Hack night (all welcome)
We will meet at Indie Hall to
Discuss examples of how different CfP projects have started, and what contributed to their success. Come up with a process for finding and reaching out to organizations with technical needs.
What can I do?
If you have interest in this project, please join us at the hack night!
- Project researchers, who can help with creating resources and processes for reaching out to external organizations.
- Referrals. If you know of an organization that may be good for us to talk to, we would love for you to introduce us.
