Inspiration

We wanted to address an issue that was real, and we immediately thought of how hard it has been, especially through the pandemic, for students to find volunteer opportunities that relate to them.

What it does

Volunteerism is a website that will recommend volunteer opportunities based on your interests and past volunteer positions you've had. Organizations and schools can also create accounts to post their opportunities and recruit volunteers.

How we built it

We built it with HTML/CSS/JavaScript, blood, sweat and tears, and of course, a lack of sleep.

Challenges we ran into

  • Reading from the database asynchronously
  • connecting our separate code/files together into one cohesive product
  • many merge issues :(

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We are all extremely proud of the product we were able to produce in the timeframe we had. Standout features that we are especially proud of include the map on the dashboard, the overall frontend design, and the logo.

What we learned

  • How to work efficiently as a group by splitting up tasks and working in separate files
  • How to use Promises to perform asynchronous tasks

What's next for Volunteerism

Who knows? If we get interest from other people then we'll probably work on polishing it and release it to the public.
