Nonprof-IT is an internship opportunity that provides students the opportunity to work on a team with other UWM students to develop a project for a local nonprofit. The class is taken through the School of Information Studies internship course (INFOST 495). The opportunity is open to freshman through seniors of any major.Teams consist of 2-4 members with different roles based on skill level and interest area. Typical roles, depending on the scope of the project include; developer, designer, project lead, and quality assurance/testing. Projects run the length of the semester, and a letter grade will be assigned upon completion of a team’s project. This is a one of a kind opportunity for students to gain real-world experience while earning course credit (1 -3 credits) and working with a mentor from the Milwaukee business community.
