We Connect The Dots (WCTD) is a non-profit which looks to close the digital divide through collaboration with the community, education, government and the technology industry. Our mission is to excite, inform and educate students about Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math (STEAM) careers. WCTD impacts students at a local, national and global level and our programs create a hunger for learning that empowers students to find their own paths to success.
As an education organization we create collaborative curriculum design projects that enable real-world workforce skills development. Our latest project is to teach students the full life cycle of a website design project. From the business conversations to the full deployment of the first release or minimum viable product (MVP). This is an opportunity to create a learning program where students can experience the many roles involved in a website design or re-design and the skills necessary for each role in the overall project. As a volunteer you will be working with one or more students or other volunteers on this project.
The project will be to support the build out of a new education application that will support a revenue model for the nonprofit organization. The application is on React and AWS Amplify, and needs some additional design and system requires to be completed and ready for promotion. We are seeking resources that can work between 5-10 hours per week to meet timelines for this application.
You will need to be able to do weekly team calls on Thursdays from 12:00- 1:00 PM EST. The first informational meeting will be held on February 18th. Once you sign up we will send you the meeting invite details. We utilize Microsoft Teams as our communication and collaboration platform and Azure DevOps for the operations management and task and goals tool. This is an opportunity to build your capacity in product that you may or may not have experience with, build your portfolio for career development, build your network of peers to grow your career, and or to give back to an organization that teaches software engineering and tech career paths.
