👋 Hello prospective new chapter leaders!

We’re so excited that you are interested in joining Hack4Impact and supporting the expansion of our impact on more nonprofits and the communities they serve.

You can find all the information about the process for becoming a new chapter and the details of the incubation program below but if you have any questions feel free to email [email protected]

❓What is the Chapter Incubation Program?

The Hack4Impact Chapter Incubation Program allows students to form successful, new Hack4Impact chapters at their schools. The year long program consists of three stages:

Stage One: Incoming Bootcamp

<aside> 📌 Chapter Founder Fellows will participate in a mandatory educational bootcamp where they'll learn to create a successful university chapter.


The 6 week incoming bootcamp program will consist of twice weekly meetings with workshops/discussions to help give you all the information you need to start a successful chapter!

You can find a preview of the Bootcamp content here!

Stage Two: Project Development

<aside> 📌 After completing bootcamp, our team will assign you your very first nonprofit project! During this time, our team will meet with you at least once a month to make sure you have all the support you need to complete the project and manage your team successfully.


Responsibilities during this stage will include

Example Resources

Initial Meeting with Nonprofit Partners

Measuring Project Success

Engineering Resources

Design Guide

Stage Three: Becoming a Mature Chapter

<aside> 📌 Becoming a mature chapter is a huge accomplishment! This means you've successfully designed, built, and delivered a project to a nonprofit, and have maintained a positive culture within your team.


Once you have delivered your first project to your nonprofit partner, you will meet with Nationals for a check-in to determine your eligibility to becoming a mature chapter. If the following items are all achieved, you will officially be a mature Hack4Impact chapter! 🎉
