Volunteer Registration For GiveCamp 2015 Now Open

You’ve waited patiently and now, your reward: Volunteer registration for New England GiveCamp 2015 is now open!

Point your browser at http://negc2015.eventbrite.com/, select your skill set, fill out the details and next thing you know, you’ll be Coding For Charity!

We do have a reduced volunteer count this year, but as it’s been since the start, we seek help from folks of all ability levels and experience, and from many different disciplines.

As in years past, most of the projects applications we’ve received involve working on websites, but as in years past, we also have some database projects, some systems integration / API requests, folks who need help with content and social media and branding … and that means, we probably need you.

Also, as we’ve done in the past, we’ll accept standby registrations, since invariably plans change and circumstances often lead to folks who wanted to participate in GiveCamp not being able to make it for the event.

Nonprofit Application Deadline Extended To Oct. 4

Do you know of a charity that could use some technical help? A new website, a database, maybe a mobile app? Have them apply for a New England GiveCamp 2015 project!

In addition to technical projects, GiveCamp volunteers can help with content, marketing, branding, social media and the like.

We’ve extended the nonprofit application deadline through Oct. 4. All worthy causes are welcome. We’ll gather together Nov. 6-8 to Code for Charity.

Technical volunteers, stay tuned for more on when and how to help!

It’s Official: Nov. 6-8, 2015 New England GiveCamp in Watertown

It’s official: New England GiveCamp 2015 will be the weekend of Nov. 6-8 at BlueMetal Architects in Watertown, MA.

We’re still working on the details of when nonprofits will begin pitching projects. Once we have that in hand, we’ll open up volunteer registration. Stay tuned!

This is a venue change from our previous home at Microsoft’s New England Research and Development facility in Cambridge.

We appreciate all Microsoft continues to do for New England GiveCamp.

Due to a number of scheduling conflicts, we couldn’t return this year, so we were kindly taken under BlueMetal’s wing. They’re also longtime and generous sponsors of New England GiveCamp, and we’re looking forward to a productive weekend there.

Follow us on Twitter, like our Facebook page, and / or subscribe to our RSS feed for more updates. Also, if you’ve previously volunteered for GiveCamp, keep an eye on your email — we’ll likely send you details on volunteer registration when the time comes.
