rF Live Broadcast: POINT App-Volunteer in Columbus
Stephanie Page is the Outreach Manager at POINT app. She is responsible for connecting a volunteer in Columbus to the best fitting nonprofit and vice versa.
“Why is it so hard to volunteer in Columbus?” Founder of POINT app, Megan Mikhail Bush, asked in college. She had her big break when she realized that phones allow people to do so much, like ordering food. There is one thing that hasn’t been attempted yet: there was no app dedicated to connecting people with volunteering opportunities. This didn’t feel right and Megan wanted to change this problem.
This easy to use app connects people to local opportunities where they can volunteer in Columbus, OH. It acts as a platform so organizations can advertise their events and the volunteers can seek out those opportunities.
How Volunteers Use It
