What is Backyard Gig?

Founded in 2020 by University of Delaware students, Backyard Gig is a service marketplace where local households & small businesses can post various gigs (like building furniture, doing yard work, or even building a website for your business) and local & trusted college students can complete those tasks for an agreed-upon wage. 

Our mission is to bridge the gap between college students and the community so that they can help each other get more done!
