Project scope
What is the main goal for this project?

As our organization grows and evolves, it is important to stay up to date with our policies. We would like to have the student draft up new policies and copy our old policies to editable format (as they are in PDF currently).

What tasks will learners need to complete to achieve the project goal?

By the end of the project, students should complete the following list of activities:

  • Draft new policies: Diversity and Inclusion Policy and Harassment & more
  • Copy old policies into an editable format
  • Suggest changes to any policies that are outdated


  • If the student has the skillset, to add these policies to our website. If not, we can take care of this one.
How will you support learners in completing the project?

Students will connect directly with us for mentorship throughout the project. We will be able to provide answers to questions such as:

  • What are the main challenges we are having with members
  • Which policies are good, which ones need updating
What skills or technologies will help learners to complete the project?

In order to complete this project, students can self-teach, but it is beneficial to be familiar with:

  • Standard policies and writing
