Pro bono/ skilled volunteerism is a concept that’s been around for a while. Yes, it can come with unique challenges, but for the most part, it tends to work well for both parties.
So why do things tend to get all murky when technology is involved?
That’s what NTEN’s Nonprofit Technology Conference (#15NTC) set out to answer with the session Tech Volunteerism Triumphs and Challenges.
Facilitated by 501 Commons, with presenters from Microsoft, Austin Free-Net, and Breakthrough Austin, it was a session fully of lively discussion from both nonprofit and volunteer perspectives.
We’ve chosen a few of our favorite live tweets from the session, some of which include actionable advice for engaging tech volunteers. (see below).
But let’s keep the conversation going! Tweet to #VolunTech with your ideas, experiences, and advice on tech volunteerism.
