Open Patterson has an open-door policy and we accept new volunteers year-round. Whether you have an interest in tech or not, you most likely have skills you can contribute to the community.

Here are a few ways you can help:

  • Software Engineering (Front-End/Back-End)
  • Data Analysis & Visualization
  • Marketing & Social Media Management
  • Language Translation (e.g. Spanish)
  • Community Building & Outreach

Onboarding Process

Because we want anyone willing to participate to be able to, regardless of location, we are remote-first. If you are interested in volunteering with us, send us an email.

Community Partners

Nonprofits & Government Agencies

Our goal is to build tools to serve the community. However, we acknowledge that we are far from the first with the goal of serving the community. As such, we prioritize partnering up with local government and nonprofits who have been putting in the work.

Your organization does not have to be based in Patterson. We give preference to organizations/governments in Stanislaus County.
