Are you a New England Non-profit looking for some friendly tech, design, and marketing help from generous volunteers in a 3-day weekend blowout? Consider applying to New England Give Camp. The organizers arrange for the facilities and food to support a hundred volunteers with arcane technical and design skills for a three-day weekend, working on projects to benefit non-profit organizations from around New England. Last year it was at the Microsoft New England Research and Development (NERD) Center at 1 Memorial Drive in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and dozens of non-profits got help with new websites, improved website functions, and other things. You just have to commit to being there to participate in directing the effort with your team of volunteers. I attended last year and had a blast. Hopefully I’ll be going again this year, depending on when it is.
