How can I join this volunteer program?

I really love computer science and coding. I want to major in computer science and I would love this opportunity to try and get myself accustomed to programming. I would love to volunteer and try to help out others in coding. I also see this as an opportunity to learn more about computer science myself. #computer-science #computer-science

Brian’s Answer

I would suggest volunteering your time with an open source project.

Brian recommends the following next steps:

Search for projects that interest you and are suitable for beginners at https://github.com/firstcontributions/first-contributions and https://opensource.com/life/16/1/6-beginner-open-source.
Get involved in the project's community and contribute in the discussion (you typically won't get comitt privileges immediately)

Maybe you can check out some Meetup(https://www.meetup.com/) events and offer a talk? Some of the events are continuously looking for speakers and it's a good way to Network with people in the industry as well.

I'd recommend looking for some non-profit orgs that may need help in their technology department. It could be helping with their website or setting up their servers, or even helping organize their internal processes!

Hey, Advik!
So, if you are interested in helping out/volunteering with a program, I would suggest doing a little research on the company you are interested in to see if there is a way to volunteer with them, if there are individuals you can discuss this potential opportunity with or go directly to their "contact us" page and send an email out. There is potential that this could could lead nowhere, or you could get in with the company and develop your skills - potentially even working for them for pay someday!
