Who: Volunteer Impact
When: June 2016
Volunteer Impact is helping environmental restoration projects create great impact stories from their data, so that they can get more funding and better engage their volunteers.
Sam, Volunteer Impact’s founder, choose to focus on a proof of concept while at RHoK. He wanted to demonstrate a way for environmental groups to record, sort and visualize their data. A group of RHoK volunteers rallied to his cause and successfully created the database tools that will allow these groups to capture and store their valuable data.
Rising to the challenge of presenting a working prototype, Sam’s team pushed themselves to take the first steps towards visualizing this data.
