Location-based app Kindly helps connect volunteers to opportunities nearby. When you open the program, it asks a few questions about where, when, and what you want to do.
Co-founder and executive director Brandom Litman hopes the program will introduce organizations to new volunteers. “[Younger people] are searching for opportunities via their mobile phone,” he says. “Volunteer organizations don’t typically have a very large technology budget to be able to build a mobile integrated solution”
Kindly can also make things run more smoothly for event organizers. For example, the app uses location services to automatically check volunteers in when they arrive.
Eventually, Litman says, he hopes the app will support donating as well as volunteering, but for now it’s focused on donating time.
