In addition to all of the studying, working, arguing with a friend, and endless studying for next week’s test, we sometimes have the desire to do something meaningful. Turns out, this isn’t as simple as it sounds. We don’t always find an activity that we connect with, and don’t always find a place to volunteer that’s close to home or where other young people volunteer. This is the exact problem that OneDay Social Volunteering seeks to solve. OneDay Social Volunteering was founded and run by Elad Blumenthal, a 2017 MBA graduate.
