Apply to be a Site Leader

Make a Mark chapters are run and coordinated by dedicated and passionate volunteers in their communities who believe in the power of design, creativity and technology for the nonprofit sector. We work directly with site leaders across the globe as they bring the 12-hour make-a-thon to their communities.

We don’t require any certain career or educational background. We are simply looking for passionate individuals that are committed to their communities and see the value in design and technology for nonprofits. We look for individuals that may already be connected to the maker and/or nonprofit space in their communities, or are willing to jump in to make these connections.

If you are interested in taking the lead on bringing Make a Mark to your community, we would love to meet you! Feel free to read through the FAQs about becoming a site leader and apply.

For 12 hours, let's make — for good.

Some of our community's biggest problems are solved entirely by volunteers. Problem is, most non-profits don't have the resources to design and develop the kinds of things it takes us a day to create.

For 1 day, we gather the best designers and developers to work on projects for the most impactful organizations in our area.
