One of the concept projects of NewYorkCrew Association is Alternative Pass, a mobile app that targets small/new/inexperienced sport event organisers that want to attract participants and to organise higher quality events. Meanwhile, while attracting these organisers, the developing team has the duty to create relevant content inside the app for the future users. This content might be represented by storing a collection of all events, athletes, slopes, skateparks, snow parks, mountain tracks, mountaineering wall routs, national parks and protected areas, chalets, partner stores, partner services, partner renting clubs or partner accommodation places. The partnership with event organisers will imply that all the participants should create an account on Alternative Pass in order to receive their points, to be part of the final ranking and to benefit from exposure inside the platform. At the same time, Alternative Pass will offer the organisers an online tool to track and plan their event at a higher quality than before. Read the project specification

 

JCI Cluj is a community of active young citizens who are constantly building relevant projects for the Cluj community. For better visibility and connection to the community, they need an updated website - including new sections and a responsive version.

 

Since 2012, Create.Act.Enjoy has been organizing art therapy events (workshops, exhibitions, concerts) for hospital patients in Cluj-Napoca. Their mission is to help patients get relief through art, while also educating people on the benefits of art therapy. For this, Create.Act.Enjoy needs an app to collect questionnaire replies more efficiently and to organize these outputs into a reliable database.

 

O Masă Caldă aims at connecting Romanian local communities with underprivileged people who can benefit from weekly free meals. The organization builds and manages teams of volunteers who come to cook at social canteens. To facilitate the booking process and the calendar updates, they need a mobile app (design included).

 

For the past 20 years, the foundation has been helping underprivileged categories to access social services. They are especially active in the socio-educational environment, having established long-time partnerships with educational institutions in Cluj-Napoca and the surrounding villages. Their project involves a website redesign.

 

The Cluj Startups mission is to support local startups by boosting their visibility over the local business ecosystem through events and support from the community. They need to partner up with devs on these projects:
- automated site updates after each new startup completes the sign-up form
- chatbot for daily digest and startup news
- crawler which identifies startup directories and startup news.

 

Asociația Informală a Vocilor pentru Incluziune is on a mission to facilitate community inclusion through non-formal programmes. So far, they’ve created ConvoClub (non-formal language learning), as well as reading-related activities and a mentorship program for schools in Cluj. In the future, their goal is creating an independent media hub for sharing inclusion stories and support. This hackathon, they’re looking after devs to help with website redesign and platform building for the media hub.

 

An active presence in the Cluj-Napoca community, Asociația Acasă is focused on helping low-income families build or renovate their homes. They also facilitate these families’ access to professional qualifications that boost chances of better employment. For their mission to succeed, they need proficient payment integrations to support the donations system.

 

One of the most unconventional civic associations out there, Beard Brothers are constantly building projects that address real social needs within the community. They hope to get backend and frontend help with their NGO and volunteers management app (which you can check here).

You're an NGO?

You
are running/part of an NGO facing these issues:
  • A long-overdue project (app, platform, website).
  • Limited resources to implement it.
  • Software partner needed.
They
are developers hungry for challenges.

And making your project real in 48h is one of their favorite meals.
