Give Timevolunteer once, volunteer often, volunteer to lead
Every year DANEnet organizes IT and tech savvy volunteers to complete technology service projects on Martin Luther King Jr. Day. MLK, Jr. Day falls on the third Monday of January. Volunteers meet at a central location for coffee and orientation. Then teams of volunteers are deployed into community organizations to complete volunteer service. Past projects have included: updating computer labs, building digital kiosks, wiring new spaces, software consultation and many others. Folks can sign up as individuals or as teams on our website. Most projects last 3 -4 hours. Register here.
“Everybody can be great…because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Ongoing Volunteer Opportunities
Throughout the year DANEnet has a number of opportunities for individuals interested in ongoing volunteering. These opportunities often are part of supporting technology education. It might include co-teaching Hour of Code, helping with a youth Maker Club at a community center, or supporting a Raspberry Pi workshop. Times and location of volunteer opportunities vary and often change from semester to semester.
DANEnet also hosts the community computing listserv which is used to post both ongoing and one-time volunteer opportunities for DANEnet and for our nonprofit clients. You can subscribe here.

Board of Directors
DANEnet’s board members are committed volunteers who oversee the strategic direction and mission of the organization. The Board of Directors meets every other month on the third Friday from 9:00 AM – 10:30 AM. Interested members meet with members of the executive committee and then are nominated at a regular board meeting. Terms are two years in length.
The Board of Directors has three standing committees: the executive committee, the finance committee and the resource committee. The Executive Committee is responsible for general Board management, the finance committee is responsible for the financial health of the organization, and the resource committee guides DANEnet’s fundraising and marketing.
