If I am interested in computer science is it better to a web development director in a non-profit or be the co-founder?
My friend is starting a non-profit and she is making me choose between the director of web development or as the co-founder of the non-profit. I really enjoy doing both but should I make everything in my application cs related? I'm interested in a variety of things such as graphic design, photography and entrepreneurship but I'm stuck. I absolutely love tech and coding! but, I also really enjoy graphic design and marketing. What would be a better choice? Being the director of web development in a non-profit or be the co-founder?

In my experience with the college hunt, colleges love to see when someone creates something new within their own community. They love to see their prospective students taking initiative, and a non-profit is a perfect way to do that. However, you also want to center your college apps around computer science, and if that is your preferred major in college then it is a smart move to take. Trying my best to put myself in your shoes, I think it would be better for you to choose the co-founder position. Not only would look amazing on college apps but would also give you authority over the web development portion of your non-profit. This way you would overlook their activities, while also having a larger, overlying role in the non-profit. I hope this helps, and please let us know what you chose! :)
well I would say both positions show leadership and are would both be strong in your application. But I'm somewhat confused since how can you be the founder of a non-profit that already exists. And why not have both positions? The activity is somehwat confusing so you would have to explain but couldn't you be a founder then work as a director or web development.
