Summer 2020 Volunteer Internship
With COVID-19 cancelling many internships, we wanted to find a way for self-motivated students to still obtain experience while also helping their communities. This LinkedIn post and associated form (below) attracted over 100 interested people. From this, we have about 80 active people in Slack and 6 teams.
With this in mind, we wrote the following in GitHub to document the common problems facing non-profit organizations.
Students will self-organize around problem statements and will need to be self-motivated and collaborative to accomplish their projects. By doing this, we are confident that we can write letters of reference that will explain each person's contribution.
