About: Most people think of volunteering as an occasional opportunity to give back and feel good while doing so. But for anyone who’s trying to solve homelessness or food security or educational inequity, you know that you need more than the occasional volunteer to help out. We understand that volunteering is a privilege, and we’d like to lower those barriers to entry. We at involveMINT think we can unleash the potential of people to tackle community issues, and serve their neighbors while doing so. We do this by creating a digital currency that supports people who want to make change. This currency, or “time credit” can then be traded with other community members for services, or redeemed at local businesses and institutions.
involveMINT brings numerous benefits to many different community stakeholders:
Nonprofits: involveMINT allows nonprofits to better recruit and retain volunteers, enabling organizations to better fill underserved positions and keep volunteers coming back to tackle recurring issues.
It doesn’t end there - involveMINT’s mobile application will allow us to “crowdsource” data and content. We know how important it is for businesses and organizations to share their stories, so we ask our volunteers to create useful social media content or data whenever they volunteer and spend time credits. This crowdsourced data and content can then be used by the organizations, or even foundations and funders in their reports.
