Algorithm Intern for Startup

I am a senior Entrepreneurship undergrad working on an app for volunteer management. I have a part of the app that requires taking metrics gathered from the app and computing a score that can describe each volunteer. I am in no way capable of writing such an algorithm and figured it'd be a good opportunity to get one of the students in the Computer Science Department some experience. At this time the position is unpaid, however if the job is done quickly and satisfactory we will need a position to handle the future iterations of the algorithm.
