The purpose of the initiative is to bring volunteers together in teams to help the social enterprise sector through multi-generational, multi-disicplinary integral service learning. You can apply to volunteer on ASI’s website or on Volunteermatch. You can see an example of a case study of what Reframe It and Advance Social Innovation do through our CrowdDoing work in the comprehensive Impact Assessment of Arcimoto CrowdDoing prepared. This was created as a supporting document of the Arcimoto IPO.
Arcimoto’s mission is to catalyze the shift to a sustainable transportation system. We’ve created the world’s first Fun Utility Vehicle: the first affordable pure electric vehicle that breaks the tradeoff between utility and rightsized efficiency for the daily driver while delivering an incredibly fun ride.
You can see examples of social enterprises that CrowdDoing has helping source volunteers for below:

TolaData is a team of Monitoring and Evaluation experts TolaData who build software to simplify the way you manage and track projects across their lifecycle. By helping organizations adopt standards and remotely monitor project activities in real-time makes it easier for frontline staff to spend less time collecting data and more time improving projects that matter. TolaData works with the existing ecosystem and smoothly integrates with the data collection apps and BI reporting tools that are already use.
The TolaData team is in the process of collecting data around key performance indicators that measure the progress and success of grants across the social sector. This “Indicator Library” should collect standardized answers to standardized questions that hold true throughout the sector. This should allow key stakeholders to easily locate information about how to measure their projects, as well as to contextualize that information.
Advanced Social Innovation and Reframe It have partnered through CrowdDoing with the TolaData team to assist in collecting this KPI data, building out a database to house the data, and then developing an easy-to-use UI to allow stakeholders to query the database.
