Each project should take roughly 5 months (1 semester) for our tech teams to complete. Please reach out if you are unsure of the scope of your project! We are always willing to talk over ideas no matter how small or large.
Currently, Yale Code4Good only works with non-profits, but if your idea is particularly socially minded we would still love to hear about it.
No, we work with nonprofits all over the world. We are currently working with an organization based out of India.
August 31st is our project proposal deadline.
All Yale Code4Good needs from your organization is consistent communication so that we can build the right thing in a correct and timely manner.
We recruit on a semester by semester basis depending on the number of projects that we have at the time.
Board elections happen at the beginning of the spring semester.
Depending on the type and difficulty of the project, we might look for people with a specific skillset. We certainly expect more experience for a tech lead, both on the technical side and management side, but don't let that deter you from applying!
No. However, we try to keep the teams small and cozy so that everyone has the opportunity to contribute significantly, learn a lot, and deliver a high quality project.
Of course! If you want to get involved, just send us a message expressing your interest and skills, and we will let you know how you can help.
