Our Kaupapa



Collaborate was created for the community by the community. 

It all started…

When a group of young people in Wellington were struggling to find volunteering opportunities where they could really make a difference.  We knew there wasn't a lack of organisations who needed volunteers.  What was needed was a better way to connect.  Since 2015 hundreds of people from community organisations, volunteers and changemakers have shaped the Collaborate app.  Through brainstorms, hackathons, design sprints, surveys, in-depth user testing and hundreds of coffees their ideas and inspiration have created a movement.  A movement of people passionate about connection, and an app that brings them together.

We wanted to do more with our time and skills to make the world a better place and we are determined to make easy for others to do the same.

We want to make volunteering fast, fun and addictive.
