Living by KCC, HPU, and UH, there are no shortage of students looking for volunteer work. Searching for non-profits brought up a few sites that would search for organizations in the area. These sites would display a massive amount of poorly filtered organizations. Some just wanted money, others were looking for volunteers, and most provided very little information. This makes it very hard for students to find a volunteer position.
It is proposed that a phone app is created for the iPhone and Android. It will provide a way for non-profit organizations and volunteers to be directly connected. The non-profits can post openings with a detailed description of what the volunteer would be asked to do. The students could apply for the opening by simply selecting the opening and confirming.
The application will provide a:
- Direct way for volunteer and organization to make contact
- Search engine for volunteers to find work directly related to their interests
- Profile support for both volunteers and organizations
- Rating system for both volunteer and organizations
- System to allow organizations to post volunteer openings
- System for volunteers to apply for openings
This application will benefit the non-profit by:
- Increasing the amount of applications recieved
