New app Commune empowers those organizing events for community projects promote and list opportunities for volunteers. The app helps users find volunteering opportunities that speak to them as well in one place while enrolling friends to make a difference as well.
Currently available for students in Columbia University, New York University and Oxbridge, the application raises awareness of local community endeavors. Organizers add details of the event and can then choose to invite friends, group members, those in particular cities, or an entire city. Planners can pilot an initiative on the app to see if volunteer recruits and judge appreciation for an event as well prior to beginning the intensive building process.
Hyperlocal startups can have a huge impact on neighborhoods and even cities, Commune hopes that by helping those starting events and those wanting to make a difference become more accessible than successful projects can launch.
