How We Work
You will work with a project lead who will serve as a liaison between your organization and a volunteer team. We’ll ascertain your needs, scope a project, and get to work. At every stage of development, you will review and provide feedback on the project. Our goal is to provide what you need.
We understand that you have sensitive information. Our volunteers sign a confidentiality agreement. Everything you share with Tech Writers Without Borders and our volunteer teams is confidential.
