Ask anyone who has ever volunteered abroad about their experience and you’ll often hear the phrase “life changing.” Unfortunately, there are significant information and financial barriers that keep more people from participating in this meaningful activity. Today, Volunteer Forever has unveiled a first-of-its-kind web platform to overcome these barriers and help prospective volunteers find and fund their trips abroad.
Developed with a mission to help more people volunteer abroad, Volunteer Forever offers a unique platform built around community engagement. The website features reviews of volunteer organizations to help users select an overseas placement, as well as a fundraising component designed around the concept of crowdfunding. Volunteers can instantly tap into the power of their extended networks and collect donations for their trip. In addition, the site will soon feature a patent-pending review verification system that leverages a user’s engagement on the site to ensure reviewer authenticity.
Founded in 2010, the industry website, Crowdsourcing.org, is a neutral organization dedicated solely
to crowdsourcing and crowdfunding. As one of the most influential and credible authorities in the crowdsourcing space,
Crowdsourcing.org is recognized worldwide for its intellectual capital, crowdsourcing and crowdfunding
practice expertise and unbiased thought leadership.
