On February 21, 2019, CI&E hosted our second social Hackathon, with our York Road partner, Rebuilding Together. Students, alumni, faculty, staff, and community members worked in teams to practice the basics of user-centered design (or design thinking) to address the question, "How Might We share the value of the Rebuilding Together volunteer experience?" Our partner walked away with some strong ideas to implement with volunteers and donors, and we look forward to updates from them on their successes.
Rebuilding Together is devoted to providing critical home repairs to low-income seniors, families, and people with disabilities who live in the Baltimore area. Since 1989 they have mobilized over 20,000 volunteers to repair more than 1,300 homes in Baltimore City and Baltimore County. Get involved with Rebuilding Together.
