re:Bloom’s mission is to make web services accessible, affordable, and sustainable, especially for women & minority-owned, small businesses within our community. Volunteer with us!

Volunteer Application - Fall 2022

While re:Bloom started as a COVID-19 response, we recognize that this pandemic has changed the future of our communities and economy and as such, felt that this immediate response to aid businesses in creating additional and creative ways to reach their customers was necessary.

It is more important than ever for small businesses to pivot their business model to include online sales and we'll be there to help make technology should be low-cost and accessible. At re:Bloom, you will be paired onto a project team of two, reporting to a project manager and a (usually) a small business client. Over the next 10 weeks, you will work together to solve a business problem using technology.While coding experience is appreciated and makes it easy to create custom code injections, it's not necessary! We work to meet our client's business needs which means we work a lot with platform builders and no-code solutions (Wix, Squarespace, etc.). We appreciate volunteers who are willing to learn and pick up new technologies. Our volunteers on average spend 10 hours a week on their projects. Each week, our volunteers attend a 1-hour meeting with their client, a 30-minute meeting with their team, and a 1-hour workshop on relevant web development topics. The rest of the time will be spent on individual project tasks.

DEADLINE TO APPLY: Saturday, August 27, 2022 @ 11:59PM
