build4good, an initiative of New America, is a paid mentorship program that matches post-secondary students who are majoring in computer science, integrated digital media, UI/UX design, or other technology-related fields to mission-driven nonprofit organizations with technology-specific project needs. This mostly remote summer internship program aims to inspire a network of future leaders to develop socially minded technology, discover public service-oriented careers, and help nonprofits harness the power of technology for social good.
Students complete an online application during the Spring semester.
We will then invite you for an interview with our team. If your experiences and interests are a match for the program, we will invite you for an interview with potential nonprofits.
If a nonprofit selects you, they will extend you an offer and we will begin discussing your project for the summer!
