Pandemic-related layoffs coupled with an increased understanding of supporting social movements has resulted in an uptick in those looking to volunteer their time, and the Pronto! app is helping people do just that.
Created by a 21 year old artist named Paul Hill, Pronto! is an app that's connecting those looking to volunteer with organizations and events that support the Black Lives Matter Movement. The founder himself explained the motivation behind creating the app by saying "“With an estimated engagement of 26 million people, the Black Lives Matter movement is the largest movement in history. Yet there hasn’t been an easy and concise tool to get involved until now.” The app features a list of organizations within cities, making for a user-friendly experience.
