About Us

Meet the team behind Corona Connects.

How We Got Started

We're a team of college students from across the US trying to make volunteering during this pandemic easy.

As our schools went virtual, we found ourselves with a strong desire to help and plenty of time to do so, but we didn’t know where to start. We knew there was an unprecedented level of need, yet struggled to identify and connect with organizations in need of volunteers. We built Corona Connects to remove that barrier and make it easy for people to help their communities. Built with the volunteer in mind, Corona Connects seamlessly matches people with time on their hands to organizations needing their help, taking into consideration volunteers' preferences and availability.
