Together, we can do anything

We need a software engineer able to oversee a project, guide both design and development, willing to help inexperienced or less prepared designers and developers contribute. This person needs to assign tasks and monitor participation holding participants to timely reporting and clear communication. Since these are all volunteers here primarily to build experience and job applicant credibility, they are all likely to leave - sometimes without a word - when they get a job. This person needs to recognize when a person seemingly steps away and be ready to slip in another volunteer in their place. Some volunteers will be inexperienced or not fully ready for the job, but we want to give them the opportunity to build on existing skills, so this will require patience.

We encourage all to show their time at KeelWorks as an actual job and we help all volunteers have an effective resume and, where appropriate, portfolio.

Mission Statement

To support a better world with better citizens by fostering learning competence, emotional intelligence, and networked intelligence. KeelWorks especially wishes to bring greater participation to the economically disadvantaged across the globe. We are building a system to support upward mobility.

Description

We are a charitable non-profit virtual foundation. Founded in 2009, we've worked with over 300 graduate students and past students helping them bridge the gap from education to gainful employment while helping KeelWorks build a structure for people needing change. Our goal is to be the equalizer, bringing those on the outside looking in to the inside. Our goal is to end poverty across the world, changing one life at a time. Our special approach involves grouping people for mutual support, teaching core competencies, and supporting goals with objective progress metrics and team accountability, We hope to build a structure for change that can be replicated hundreds and thousands of times. We don't give participants fish, but hope to teach them to fish for themselves.
