Step 2. Each project must be completed within a certain budget and timeframe that is worked out between the facilitator (Najlah Hicks) and client.
Step 3. Depending on the scope of each project, you or a number of individuals will be asked for your level of interest and availability to work on that project (i.e.: graphic design, branding, website, animation, back end development, etc.)
Step 4. Your hours spent on each project is set at a fixed rate specific to each project and its corresponding budget.
Step 5. Use Design for Social Good as an environment to not only to exchange ideas and opportunities but learn other skills that you’re interested in
