New Video: Jacob Colker of The Extraordinaries on “Crowdsourced” Volunteering

The Extraordinaries is a new service that aims to make it easy for volunteers to discover projects that have been sliced and diced into bite-sized pieces that can easily be done by lots of a people over their mobile phones within minutes. It’s called “crowdsourcing,” and it promises to add new potential to virtual volunteering.

I was curious what nonprofits need to know to take part, so I caught up with Jacob Colker, co-founder of The Extraordinaries, at this year’s Netsquared Conference:

Do you see crowdsourcing in the future of your volunteering program? What would you  have to change in order to take advantage of this trend?

  1. I am in love with this! Using crowdsourcing to help non-profits and enabling those that may think they don’t have time to volunteer the chance to do so, is such a fantastic and innovative idea! Bravo!

  2. Welcome! BTW, congrats on winning at Netsquared. And thanks too for being the official first commenter on this new blog from VolunteerMatch. Looks like you’re blazing trails in more ways than one.
