Offering website development for free just for experience. Is it advisable?

I'm a Computer Science grad and attended a 3-month web dev bootcamp. I want to build a strong portfolio to show to my first employer. Should I find a client and offer a free small website? Or should I just make my own projects? It's just for experience and I'd like to add it to my resume and portfolio. show more I'm a Computer Science grad and attended a 3-month web dev bootcamp.
