A community built on benevolence.
Vome was created in order to promote volunteering and to address the inefficiencies and inconveniences associated with community involvement. We noticed that for some reason, it was too difficult for organizations to find volunteers and too difficult for the average person to find an engaging community service opportunity that meshed well with their schedule and interests. The common cause that we identified for both of these issues is the absence of a simple-to-use, online interface that seamlessly connects organizations with volunteers.
With Vome, anyone can log on, scroll through the Opportunity Board and browse the various volunteering opportunities posted by local organizations. Each of these postings contains dates, times, information and requirements, and comes tagged with certain key words that reflect certain interests. Once a volunteer finds a suitable event, all they have to do is confirm their attendance. It’s that easy.
We recognize that some people also use their community involvement as a boost to their professional profiles. So, by signing up as a Verified user, we will track all of your volunteering data including hours, frequency, places you’ve volunteered and your Vome achievements, and present the data in a personalized volunteering resume. And to ensure the legitimacy of all of the data we track, we personally approve every organization that signs up, and every logged opportunity is necessarily confirmed by the organization having hosted the event.
"Volunteering is an act of heroism on a grand scale. It matters profoundly. It does more than help people beat the odds. It changes the odds."
- President Bill Clinton
We provide our volunteers with two versions of our product.
Our free version allows a person to perform Vome’s most basic functions. People can browse opportunities on the Opportunity Board and confirm their attendance, but they receive little in data tracking. It is geared towards the casual volunteer who wants to help out in their spare time.
For those who would also like to use their community involvement to boost their professional profiles, we offer a tool that tracks volunteering progress and makes the data presentable for potential employers or universities. Every opportunity selected by a volunteer and then confirmed by the organization will receive our “Verified Volunteering” stamp. Once the opportunity has received the stamp, the hours are logged onto the user’s profile and the data is then exportable to a Vome transcript. Your transcript is where you can find all of your raw volunteering data.
* Verified Users pay $2.99/month or $24.99/year to enjoy benefits
With Vome, providing ample volunteering opportunities for the student body is no longer an issue since students themselves can pick the ones that appeal to them. The key to VomeED however is the school portal. Upon signup, the school will receive its own private portal on the Vome system where it can track all of the volunteering done by the student body (including hours, locations and achievements) without having to worry about lost forms, late hand-ins and fraudulent volunteering.

Vome is free for organizations! It’s because of you that people can have opportunities to lend a helping hand so we want you to use our tool as much as possible. We encourage any organization to sign-up to Vome and post as much as they want. It’s a great way to find volunteers and to promote your cause.
