Are you a computer genius? Master web designer? Or possibly the next Mark Zuckerberg?

A new student organization just may have the perfect opportunity for you.

Students Consulting for Non-Profit Organizations (SCNO) is a national organization of undergraduate students committed to developing communities through pro-bono consulting engagements with non-profit organizations.

The Ithaca College chapter was recently registered. We are building our organization from the ground up, and looking for a webmaster to help us develop a website.

This is the perfect opportunity to help a student organization, help your community, and build your resume all at once!

Not a computer science major? No problem! People of all academic backgrounds are welcome to apply: the only requirement is an interest in web development.

All interested students can contact for more information.
