My Portfolio Project (First draft)
Updated: Dec 13, 2019
What is the Portfolio Project?
For the Apprenticeship program I am doing (Praxis), the month of December is dedicated to a portfolio project of our choosing. The project is a way for us to grow in our chosen role by doing a dynamic project that will showcase our skills and what we have learned. I have chosen to do an operations centric project with a local non-profit business called Westside Cares. My project will be two or more proposals on how to improve the tracking of in kind donations.
What my project is:
Two or more proposals for a non-profit charity, Westside Cares, in my community on how to improve their system for tracking donations, and make it more efficient.
By the end of the month:
I will have a completed proposal
Learned and used Trello for project management
At least one interview with someone who knows the steps to expanding a business
Hard and soft skills:

I will be learning and using Trello for project management
Week 1: Find all the problems I want to address in the proposal, learn the basics of Wrike
Week 2: Interview and research
Week 3: Rough draft of everything
