Welcome to the forum @katieking!
Check out volunteermatch.org for virtual projects and catchafire.org for projects as well. Also emailing small companies that need work on their site or app can sometimes be fruitful.

Good luck!

Welcome to the forum @david_r_jenkins!
A good book or two is Information Architecture for the World Wide Web, 4th edition. and Blueprints for the Web by Christina Wodtke. May seem a little out dated, but the content holds true.

Good luck!

Welcome to the forum @Stacey!
There are bootcamps if you want guided help. You could self study which can be hard when you don’t know what you don’t know. Read through the articles here and it will give you a lay of the land.

Good luck!
