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.
