We bring together civic-minded volunteers to build digital products, programs and services with community partners and local government to address issues in our LA region and to share these effective processes, practices, and code with the larger civic tech community.
Hack for LA is a project of Code for America and is its official Los Angeles chapter.
Hack for LA needs Advisors in a variety of areas. These roles are flexible and can be short-term or ongoing. If you are deeply experienced in a specific area such as Fundraising, Marketing, Scalable System Architecture, Diversity, Equity & Inclusion initiatives, etc., we are interested in talking to you.
How to get involved:
Volunteer with Us
Hack for LA projects are currently recruiting for activists, coders, designers, researchers, testers, business analysts, project/product managers, data scientists, dev ops, writers, and marketers of all experiences and skill levels. Everyone is welcome!
We are a Do-ocracy: we are not a school, yet everyone here is learning something, growing their experiences, portfolios and ability to work on inter-disciplinary teams.Project Volunteer

Running Hack for LA costs money
In support of the development and launch of enterprise software products with Government and nonprofit partners, we are standardizing our infrastructure and procedures. This enables Hack for LA to provide world-class training to our members and valuable, scalable, impactful products to the community.
