Join the campfire and tech it forward

Volunteers build the tools that strengthen nonprofits in our community. GiveCamp, a three-day weekend event where individuals donate their time to help local nonprofits, is fueled by the generosity of talented volunteers. Experienced project managers partner with nonprofits and guide their team members throughout GiveCamp Weekend.

Event-specific Opps

Event Committee

GiveCamp NWA is run by a small group of dedicated individuals. If you love to organize, plan, and keep the trains running on time, we need you! This role is the most involved and you can learn more about it here.

Project Managers

Project managers ensure that the projects stay on task and meet their objectives in a very short window of time. This role is critical to the success of the project.

Typical project management tasks include:

  • Identifying project scope, 
  • setting expectations with the nonprofit representative, 
  • time management, guiding team members’ work,
  • representing the team with the organizers.

Unlike other roles, Project Managers get their assignments several weeks in advance of the event and must be available to meet with the nonprofit representatives and begin planning the project one to two weeks before the event takes place.


Design volunteers have backgrounds in areas such as UX, UI, and graphic arts. Common activities performed by these volunteers include: 

  • heuristic design evaluations, 
  • page layout, 
  • information architecture, 
  • fine-tuning of styles, 
  • creation and editing of graphics and photos.  

Specialize in print and logo design? We need you too!

Developers & Web Builders

Most of our websites are done in WordPress, which means we often need people familiar with CSS, PHP, and other languages. In recent years, we’ve had the opportunity to produce non-website projects in languages such as Python. We love how our developers have been willing to jump in and do what is needed, even if it’s not a high-tech task.

We’ve recently expanded to offering custom-built sites in drag-and-drop editors like SquareSpace and Wix. If you have experience with these platforms, we’d love to hear from you.


Copywriters write and edit content for non-profit websites and provide guidance on topics such as content strategy and tone.

Technical Gurus

This category changes at the rate of technology. As a result, we have a growing need for expertise in SEO, security, social media, and other forms of technology, including Microsoft and Google platforms.


The jack-of-all-trades, we need help setting up/cleaning up for each of the six meals and volunteers for registration and check-in. These volunteers are organized by the committee and will not be required to be available all weekend.

Organization Team Opps

Sponsor Development

We are looking for someone to join our team and help us develop relationships with our sponsors.

This would include reaching out to new partners, maintaining current relationships, and helping us to source and write grants to expand our capacity.


Content Creation

As an organization, we would love to be more than “just” an annual website/technology creation nonprofit. We want to provide ongoing encouragement, education, and insights into how local nonprofits can better serve their respective audiences.
What does that look like? We need help with:

  • Blog posts
  • Canva graphics
  • Video
  • Newsletters (MailChimp)
  • Social Media
  • Event Organization


Planning our annual event

GiveCamp event starts in January and ends approximately a month after the event. Adding to our event planning team would enable us to serve more organizations and expand our offerings to multiple events.

Volunteer FAQs

When’s dinner (and everything else)? 

GiveCamp is a fully catered event. Mealtimes are typically noon and six pm. We try to accommodate special dietary needs, so tell us if you have specific requests when you apply.
As far as the schedule goes, you should plan to be available to your team for the entire event. Plan to be onsite or online most of the weekend. A little bit more about what that will look like is on our Event Schedule.

When will I find out what I’m doing? 

You’ll get your team assignment within a week of the event so you can begin researching your nonprofit.
Be on the lookout for periodic emails from the team to help you prepare for the event. We try to avoid last-minute changes to team assignments but it does happen sometimes.

What should I wear?

We suggest comfortable layers.
No need to dress up. We’re casual here at GiveCamp.  
If you get cold, definitely bring a sweater.

What should I bring?

We provide pens, notepads, post-its, and some other miscellaneous supplies, but we do not supply laptops or computers. 
Please bring your own computer, a charging cable, and a flexible attitude.

Are we really camping?

No- our GiveCamp isn’t really a camp.  
We try to wrap up work by 10 pm every night so our volunteers can make it home safely each night.
You can always get a hotel room close by if travel is too far, but we don’t offer reimbursement for volunteer expenses.

Will I get to code?

Probably not. But it’s hard to say.
We typically build our websites in WordPress, so the most coding you will do is CSS, PHP, JavaScript, and HTML.
