During these uncertain times, how can we help?
See below to access our COVID-19 Resource Hub, and to explore our growing directory of both COVID-19-specific and virtual volunteering opportunities.
Alonesy, a 501(c)3 nonprofit aiming to provide mentorship services via an online platform to struggling teenagers, is seeking mobile application developers. The requirements for our app include having secure encrypted video chat, text, and audio calling capabilities. We hope that our app will serve as our signup platform for teenagers that are in need of a mentor, so this app will need to have both interfaces for mentors as well as the clients (teenagers). A team of developers is preferred as this is a large project that requires complex algorithms and instant messaging functionality.

Alonesy aims to provide free mentoring services to struggling teenagers through an online platform.
Founded by Jack Bowers as a senior in high school, Alonesy is one of the only providers of free online mentoring services. Currently, many adolescents are not seeking support due to stigma, lack of accessibility, and monetary constraints. Alonesy was created to bridge the gap between upper and lower class individuals to ensure that every person in need has access to support.
Unlike a crisis hotline, Alonesy prides itself on providing ongoing mentoring services. Mentors meet with individuals on a weekly basis and check in via text throughout each week.
We'll work with your schedule.
This is a Virtual Opportunity, with no fixed address.
