Mission Statement

Enable adult volunteers to share knowledge, life skills, experience, & friendship with a motivated adult learner in our community looking for a little help. We are launching in San Mateo County in Spring 2020. Please preview our website now, and sign up for notifications or check back when we are ready in a few months!

Description

"Volunteering made direct."

We match adult volunteers 1:1 with an adult who has a learning need & wants a little help. Our program is unique in that each learner is described directly on our website. By personalizing every need upfront, we hope to create great matches for limitless learning topics.

We're launching in 2020 by working with local adult schools. Their students are immigrants & low-educated adults who would appreciate meeting a volunteer outside the limited circles many of them have.

Our ultimate vision is to be an ongoing platform where any adult with a learning goal can ask for help from someone in the broader community. With the social & economic gaps in the bay area, we especially want to give a voice to people with a higher goal, but simply lack access to anyone who can help. And in doing so, we hope to inspire more volunteers with a transparent & easy process.

We hope to give people the chance to meet, work with, & better understand someone in a circle different from their own. By making these connections, our community improves, one person at a time.
