πŸ“πŸ« We're Jammin' πŸ‡

This summer, join us to build the future of Hack Club meets - we're calling them Jams!

Work with the team at HQ to ship a Jam and πŸ’Έ we'll pay you $200 πŸ’Έ for your 10-15 hour time commitment. Then, your Jam will be used by thousands of Hack Clubbers around the world!

A Jam is a real project that can be completed in under 1 hour and everyone's result is different! The goal is to build a quality project for varying technical abilities and will include slides and a video.

🌈Here's how to get started

  • We're only accepting 20 Jams this round
  1. Propose a Jam by July 2! *Check the README for instructions
  2. Hear back from the team within 48 hours Mon-Fri on whether your proposal is accepted.
  3. Once accepted, work closely with the team to write the Jam, make a presentation and film a short video by July 19.
  4. Ka-chingπŸ’°πŸͺ™!
