Background and objectives
The volunteers will work with the Executive Director (ED) and UX/UI team to develop the front end and back end of a platform based on the designs. The web platform is primarily to give students in Africa opportunities to gain real life work experiences. The team communicates and collaborates through Email, Slack, Trello and Real Time Board.
Technology development
Other information and telecommunications technology experience
As an organization, we are committed to using technology to advance education in Africa. This project is to further realize this mission. The project is to design and build a youth friendly web platform where students can find and undertake real life tasks to learn and gain work experiences. Education in Africa has been poor and most times, when students graduate, they are unable to find jobs because they lack the required skills. But this project will contribute in changing this narrative. As a volunteer, you will be helping to make this a reality.
Volunteers: 3 needed
1-5 hours per week / 24 weeks
Technologies to be used in development are ReactJS for frontend, NodeJS for backend, MongoDB for database. So the volunteers MUST be highly skilled in delivery on those technologies beyond the basics of HTML5 & CSS3 and be familiar with Git.
