After two weeks of web programming classes, high school students will build functioning websites for nonprofits during a one-day WebSlam.

Nonprofit in need of a website redesign? In September, you can enlist the services of a Baltimore city high school student.

The Digital Harbor Foundation (DHF) is holding a hackathon-like, one-day WebSlam on Sept. 28. From 8 a.m. until 8 p.m., high school students will build functioning websites for nonprofits using web programming skills — HTML, CSS and PHP basics for developing on the WordPress platform — learned over a series of courses held the two weeks prior to the Sept. 28 event.

Courses will be held Sept. 16 through Sept. 27, Monday through Friday, from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Interested students can sign up here.

The WebSlam is Sept. 28, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Needed are:

Financial assistance to pull off the event, and the course time, comes from the MacArthur Foundation and several other organizations. Federal Hill-based DHF was recently awarded $9,945 as part of the fifth annual Digital Media and Learning Competition. DHF was one of 16 grant recipients nationwide from a pool of 266 applicants.

As Technically Baltimore has reported, the nonprofit Digital Harbor Foundation was established in March 2012 to help Baltimore city school students develop skills in entrepreneurship, programming and digital fabrication en route to jobs in the local technology workforce.
