If you want to create an event, make your own account, or just use ours:
We realized that currently volunteer opportunities get shared by word of mouth or social media. With Voluntix we aim to create a centralized place where organizations or event organizers can share volunteer opportunities with their community.
🚀 What it does
Voluntix brings organizations and potential volunteers together by having a centralized platform where event organizers can create experiences and prospective volunteers can see upcoming events or opportunities near them.
🛠 How we built it
🧪 Challenges we ran into
- Finding a good map API
- Converting street addresses into longitudinal and latitudinal coordinates
- Responsiveness & mobile compatibility
🏅 Accomplishments that we're proud of
🧠 What we learned
We learned a lot about geolocation and using a brand new API in a very short time.
🎓 What's next for Voluntix
