The Delta.NYC 2017 program is now accepting applications for digital professionals.
Until now, helping out a local public interest organization on a digital project has been an uphill battle: technologists, designers, data gurus, digital marketers, hackers, and product folks have had to carry the weight of scoping, translation, product management, and navigating an organization’s technical debt just to begin volunteering.
Delta.NYC solves this challenge.
Delta.NYC is designed to make the experience of pro bono tech more efficient, meaningful and fun for both digital professionals and organizations. Delta.NYC goes beyond just pro bono work: technologists work together. Pro bono participants collaborate with peer professionals in the program, including and beyond their project team, to strategize, process, socialize and expand their knowledge of relevant issues around tech and its impact on society.
