Our Story

 

Connect Volunteering was founded through the vision that volunteerism can change lives and it deserves to be spread. We identified that most volunteers, especially youth volunteers, weren't always interested in the causes their volunteering for. That's why we built a platform where volunteers can find non-profits and causes that match up with their needs and interests. We want to give the community an easier gateway into the world of volunteerism.

Unfortunately, executing a plan is much more difficult than many think. We were founded in 2020, the year of the COVID-19 pandemic. Non-profit after non-profit were forced to shut down operations and volunteerism slowed down to help "flatten the curve". To us, it was clear that now, more than ever, volunteerism was key to a united community. We started holding our own socially-distanced volunteering events every month to help people come together for a common cause. Through these events, we helped homeless shelters, frontline workers, children's hospitals, and more! We started holding our own virtual workshops to help our base become more well-rounded people and learn new skills. Through these workshops, we've helped over 230 people from 15 different countries learn from CEOs, world-famous people, and more. Soon we plan on holding youth events to help the children of the community learn new skills and start their volunteering journey. We understand the community needs to be united to succeed, and we're dedicated to helping that happen.

At the end of the day, we're utterly dedicated to helping the community grow and unite through volunteerism. We simply want to see everybody become a more well-rounded and loving individual, both inside and outside the world of volunteering.
