Through the Jarvus-powered hackerspace, Devnuts congregates to leverage its team’s talents to improve our city’s education and civic sectors through community engagement.
During the school year, Jarvus works in tandem with the Science Leadership Academy (SLA), Urban Technology Project, and Communities in Schools Philadelphia to host Digital Service Fellows and SLA students for hands-on mentoring at Jarvus after school. The Jarvus mentors guide and support the students while they build their own applications.
We use our development engine for positive influence in our city through a variety of civic hacking efforts. As a member of the Civic Hackers Guild, Jarvus organizes, hosts, and promotes a series of “hackathons” for community projects in the Philadelphia area.
Summer Code Camp
After school lets out for the summer, Jarvus works with SLA to provide students with a place to continue pursuing their software development passions during their vacation. Students work with Jarvus mentors and developers who guide them through creating their own web applications.
Jarvus offers college graduates, undergrads, and dropouts a variety of mentorship and internship programs. Interns are expected to pursue their own projects while receiving support from their Jarvus mentors. If and when an intern rises to production-level capabilities, Jarvus will offer access to an immediate flow of paid freelance work.
