About TDE

The Difference Engine, NFP is a 2 year old tech based nonprofit with a mission to empower those from non-traditional backgrounds launch their careers. We do this through our completely FREE apprenticeship program where we build website and applications pro bono for in-need organizations. This is WHAT we do. Why we do it? Tech has proven to be an infinite source of life transforming opportunities for organizations of all sizes and people from all backgrounds. However, there is a disproportionate number of people and small orgs that have been left behind without the tools and resources to fully take advantage of all that tech has to offer. We fill that gap through programming, network and apprenticeship. We have been able to help many people get the skills they need to secure employment as full time technologists regardless of their starts in life. We are passionate to keep going!

SOUNDS GREAT, SO WHAT'S MISSING?

YOU! If you are someone with vision and the skills or network to execute on truly making a difference. We are currently seeking someone able to focus TDE's Growth Capital Campaign and the Direct Public Offering (DPO). As a very young and growing nonprofit we are looking for more people to not only join our board of directors but lead it to the next level.

Everyone encouraged to apply preference will be given to those with prior board leadership experience in any sector. Tech know-how NOT NEEDED.

  • Create & Execute on TDE's Growth Capital Campaign and the Direct Public Offering (DPO)
  • Organization of the Board of Directors, Officers and Committees
  • Oversight and Solicitation from Advisory Committee
  • Fundraising and Outreach

 Members of the board share these responsibilities while acting in the interest of TDE and its affiliates. Each member is expected to make recommendations based on his or her experience and vantage point in the community.
