JoeVolunteer is making an impact by helping all Austin folks know exactly when and where to help their fellow humans and furry friends. The volunteer opportunities are lined up on your phone according to location, time, and preference to help with others.
We are making it nearly frictionless to help with technology--by assisting and helping coders and hackers volunteer to help the community through ATX Hack for Change; or teaching girls to get involved in learning tech through ChickTech...these places need more volunteers (we call them Joes), and our technology can help make that happen.
We can also help with the Education field by helping to get people involved with organizations like Junior Achievers, where our Joes can help teach financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurial skills to kids from kindergarten through 12th grade. Or working with the Inside Books Project, which gets books for people trying to improve themselves in prison.
We help in the Health field through providing our Joes to Children's Hospitals, or through organizations such as No One Dies Alone, Austin. We can also help with the homeless population, giving access to clean water, food, and dignified living through groups like Caritas, or Front Steps organization.
We are able to help in all of the above fields, and can also lend support and volunteers to places that help in clean energy and public safety, as well. This is the "one app to bind them," methodology of increasing volunteerism, notification technology that will alert volunteers to when and where they can help and to promote human kindness, in general. This will make Austin (and other areas soon thereafter) a much kinder place to live.
