Description

Over the two years, there has been a surge in demand from immigrants for education and legal services across the United States. There is also a large supply of volunteers offering to teach such classes. The bottleneck is that connecting immigrants and volunteers is done manually by non-profit staff, who do not have the capacity to provide matching/scheduling services.

The Ask

Develop and deploy enhancements for a mobile-friendly React web app that matches needy individuals seeking knowledge services--English classes, US citizenship classes, or legal aid--with volunteers willing to help.

App location: https://tutoria.io

The length of your service depends on your availability, with a minimum of 3-6 months requested.

Experience preferred: Ruby on Rails and React; deployment to Amazon Web Services.

Why Tutoria?: There is a strong demand from immigrants for education and legal services across the United States. There is also a large supply of volunteers offering to teach such classes. The bottleneck is that connecting immigrants and volunteers is done manually by non-profit staff, who do not have the capacity to provide matching/scheduling services.

Tutoria welcomes all student volunteers to apply with us. However, due to visa restrictions, we cannot accept applicants who:

  1. Want to use Tutoria volunteering to fulfill OPT requirements for F1 or M1 visas; and
  2. Have a STEM degree-based OPT.

We do accept OPT volunteers without a STEM degree. Candidates will be required to submit evidence from their institution verifying that their degree is non-STEM.

Mission Statement

To connect seekers of knowledge services with volunteers eager to make a difference.

Description

Tutoria connects people in need with volunteer tutors via our online platform. Volunteers and clients sign up at https:// tutoria.io. They select their interests (English tutoring, US Citizenship, or legal aid) and availability. They then connect with one another via direct message.

Why Tutoria? There is a strong demand from immigrants for education and legal services around the world. There is also a large supply of volunteers offering to teach such classes. The bottleneck is that connecting immigrants and volunteers is done manually by non-profit staff, who do not have the capacity to provide matching/scheduling services. As a volunteer, you will not only create a social impact by helping us meet this need; you will benefit personally by working closely with a passionate group of volunteer professionals, including Tutoria’s leadership.
