volunteering makes a difference
Connect your volunteers to change the world

Getting the most out of your volunteers can be a challenging task. Inspiring leadership, onboarding newbies and retaining long-term volunteers present the most challenges for organizations. And of course the constant need for recruitment! Open Social’s community platform was initially designed to complement volunteer groups specifically for these challenges. Online volunteering helps organizations and volunteers team up and collaborate  – anywhere in the world, from any device.  

When skilled and enthusiastic individuals work with great organizations to make a positive difference, everyone wins.

volunteer community
learn from each other
Share your knowledge and experiences

Every volunteer community is essentially a knowledge-sharing platform. Connect volunteers with the right information in discussions. Our personalized activity stream ensures that volunteers only see relevant updates to them.
In the end, knowledge is power, but using it effectively is powerful. Share resources and learn how to contribute to a better future.
