Voluntarily Product

Support education and innovation with experts in the classroom.

We are building a platform that connects corporate volunteer time with classrooms to teach science, technology, engineering, entrepreneurship, arts and design with the help of engaging content supplied by New Zealand’s leading innovators in educational content.

Voluntarily.nz is a charitable initiative by the Pam Fergusson Charitable Trust (the same charity that powers OMGTech!) and is supported by The Big Shift, an initiative lead by Datacom with the support of the Ministry of Education, Tertiary Education Commission, Westpac, Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development (ATEED), Microsoft and many leading NZ corporates.

We are building the platform now. Join our Open Source Developer Team at https://gitter.im/voluntarily/community
