If you’re a college student who wants to spend Spring 2017 pushing web accessibility forward, we’ve got some great news for you.

Just a few months ago, Philadelphia-based accessibility nonprofit EvoXLabs was awarded a grant from AccessComputing at the University of Washington to begin fleshing out project-based initiatives.

Helping Philadelphia’s Office of HIV Planning scrape regional HIV/AIDs data from a massive 400-page PDF document is the first of those projects — an initiative called “Aditum API,” originally worked on by a crew of paid EvoXLabs interns.

That internship program, as EvoXLabs founder Ather Sharif hinted at this past August, has now evolved into a full-fledged co-op program, and EvoXLabs is looking for students who want to join up and hone their web accessibility skills over the course of the Spring 2017 semester.

Work includes finishing the Aditum API project, design and development work that follows web accessibility standards and lending a hand in organizing evoHaX, EvoXLab’s annual Philly Tech Week event.

Interested applicants should apply by Dec. 15.
