Mission Statement

Flash Volunteer seeks to build community and increase volunteerism in Seattle through a sustainable, user-friendly online platform to connect, inspire and mobilize volunteers to effect meaningful change on a neighborhood level.

Description

Flash Volunteer provides online management tools and strategic support for hyperlocal volunteer opportunities, empowering Seattleites to participate more fully in regular, sustainable volunteer service.

Founded in July 2009, Flash Volunteer works with a diverse group of community partners, including nonprofits, neighborhood organizations, and individual citizens to lay the groundwork for sustainable volunteer service here in Seattle.

Flash Volunteer sorts volunteer projects by neighborhood and "pushes" relevant opportunities to an individual’s personal homepage, creating a user-friendly template for getting (and staying) involved. Users are also able to create their own service opportunities to address issues and causes that are important to them. This may include cleaning up the neighborhood, setting up a project at the nonprofit down the block, or creating a Flash Team of enthusiastic, service-minded neighbors.

Created and maintained entirely by volunteers, Flash Volunteer combines principles of social innovation with good old-fashioned grassroots organizing to create a truly effective model of nonprofit sustainability.
