Aunt Mary's Storybook, a project of Companions Journeying Together, bridges the distance between incarcerated people and the children most important to them, by recording touching audio readings of stories. Transitioning from cassette tapes to CDs, and now to a web-based system, we've innovated our delivery over the years to connect families in profound ways.

We now seek a dedicated PHP volunteer web developer to join our current team of talented developers. Together, you'll enhance our existing system, bringing new features to life, and smoothing out any bugs. Your work will be instrumental in enriching the lives of those separated by incarceration.

What You'll Do:

  • Collaborate with other volunteer developers to add features and fix bugs
  • Work with a codebase hosted in GitHub, built using CodeIgniter 4, and hosted on Amazon AWS
  • Participate in team communication via Slack

Skills We're Looking For:

  • Proficiency in PHP and SQL
  • Experience with CodeIgniter or similar MVC frameworks
  • Experience with Bootstrap is a plus
  • A detail-oriented approach to coding and problem-solving
  • A collaborative mindset and the ability to work well with a team


  • Must be located in the United States
  • Please note that we are unable to assist with obtaining or maintaining a United States visa, including an F-1 / OPT visa.

Why Volunteer With Us: Your technical skills will directly impact the lives of families, helping to foster connections through our unique storybook recordings. Working with our committed team, you'll be contributing to a meaningful cause while sharpening your development skills.

Get Involved: To learn more about our organization and this unique volunteer role, please contact us. We'll then direct you to complete an online volunteer application. Join us in weaving technology and compassion together, making memories that last a lifetime.
