We need up to 3 volunteers to help us develop a curriculum for web development for beginners. We will deliver this curriculum to volunteers/members of the board as a proof of concept in the Summer of 2021. In the following Summer of 2022, we will deliver this curriculum to teach under-served high school students how to code websites, then host a hackathon for them to each develop a website for a local business. You will develop and contribute to the curriculum, are not obligated to deliver it (but may if you would like), and may help develop any templates, assets, style guides, etc. that would assist in the curriculum delivery or hackathon portion.

We are currently envisioning the following technology stack: HTML, CSS, Javascript, and deploying/hosting via GitHub. For the curriculum, we are targeting a total 45 hours of instruction + 10 hours of buffer room, while delivering 2 hours a day (+ 1 hour of lab/office hours). This puts the curriculum at 5.5 weeks of instruction, followed by the hackathon portion.

Description

Hackertunity, Inc. is a non-profit in the process of being established. We’re based in California-- many of us with roots in the Antelope Valley. Essentially, we want to give people who could really use it an opportunity to jumpstart a new career in tech. We plan to partner with local high schools, targeting at-risk students in the Antelope Valley of Southern California. We will teach them how to build websites over the summer. Then we will host a hackathon-an event where they will each code a website in partnership with local businesses.

In 2021, we are focusing on developing the curriculum, running an initial proof-of-concept (with board and committee members acting as students), ironing out the process, and establishing partnerships with schools and businesses.

In the summer of 2022, we plan to host our first class + hackathon for five high school students.
