How it Works

Apply

We work with nonprofits that otherwise lack the resources to talk about, publicize, brand and market their next big projects. The nonprofit organizations will be matched with designers and developers of all experience levels—from students to seasoned professionals—who are interested in making a difference.

Team assignments

We place designers and developers with organizations where their strengths will shine. Students are paired with professionals to provide a valuable mentorship experience.

Meet & plan

Our pre-planning event is your first chance to meet your nonprofit representatives and teammates. Held the week before our main event, this is a chance to get to know one another, prepare, and ask lots of questions.

This is it! After arriving and grabbing a bite to eat, you’ll dive right in—emerging 12 hours later with a finished project to present to your nonprofit.
