Mission Statement

Acquaint is a nonprofit platform where people around the world grow and learn through human connections.

Description

Acquaint is a community of people across all walks of life who grow and learn together through authentic human connections. The program is powered by volunteers who take the time and effort to give back by sharing stories and getting to know one another.

A series of virtual experiences on our platform serve as icebreakers, displaying images and fun facts that make conversation easier. Members volunteer on their own time from any location with an internet connection, making it a convenient way to give back. Connecting authentically with others is an inherent act of good. Only a collective effort made by individuals across generations and cultures can succeed in bringing the world closer together and healing divisions.

Since I started volunteering for Acquaint, I've met amazing, joyful volunteers from all over the world with a passion for volunteering and learning about different cultures, beliefs, ethnicities, points of view, and much more. We go around countries admiring their uniqueness and learning about their beautiful history. It is an ineffable experience, to be able to connect so beautifully with strangers that aren't strangers at the same time. Because we connect in ways that strangers don't connect. Acquaint has a mission, and my mission as one of Acquaint's volunteers is to make every session a phenomenal journey, full of laughter and amazing vibes. Volunteering for Acquaint has been one of the best decisions I've made. Because this type of connection is undeniably beautiful.

As the Director of Community Operations with Acquaint, the experience that I have had working and connecting with people from all over the globe has been so impactful! Speaking with people from completely different cultures and being able to learn how amazing and diverse people can be is humbling and rewarding. I am so excited to see our cultural networking volunteer numbers grow knowing so many lives will be affected in such a positive way all over the world!

Volunteering for HomeAgain VR is a very rewarding experience. As a volunteer you get to play around with an exciting new technology, work with a people from a variety of backgrounds who look forward to your visits, and best of all, bring smiles to faces and take part in incredible moments. My favorite part of volunteering is hearing resident's stories and finding VR experiences for them. In my several volunteer sessions I have witnessed both caretakers and residents of elder care facilities laugh, cry (with joy!), be amazed, and have old memories triggered. In some cases you work with disabled individuals or those in memory care, and seeing their faces light up with recognition when you show them a place they went in their youth is incredibly moving. I can't recommend HomeAgain VR enough!

I love volunteering with Acquaint! I always walk out of sessions feeling accomplished, happy, and energized. Making connections with new and different people feels more and more natural the more I volunteer.
