Itai Pinkas is a 14-year-old Israeli entrepreneur with a four-year experience in the field, who has developed the Voluntree application which connects volunteers and the associations that could use their services. Use of the new app is free.
Individuals looking to volunteer for a one-time project can enter the system and check which projects are looking for volunteers, without long-term commitment.
The application went up on the App Store three days ago and is rated 58th in popularity.
Young Pinkas said, “Recently I decided to volunteer for the community, but not on a permanent basis, only occasionally. I found it difficult to locate the various requirements of associations and organizations, so I decided to develop an application that would help me and others to volunteer for projects without having to commit long-term. Now I hope to find voluntary events I could participate in.”
The development was done with support from Israeli hi-tech company Rapid API, which offers developers ready-to-use code for mobile applications, as well as graphics services, user experience design, and server-side development tools that allow entrepreneurs to create new apps on a small budget.
