Tech-enabled change makers can increase volunteerism, civic engagement, corporate social responsibility, and social good through a new kind of social networking. NobleHour has announced the official launch of http://noblehour.com, an online platform for civic engagement that fosters community growth through volunteering and service learning.
“Noblehour was developed as an alternative to current social communities that merely encourage the “me” generation. In the hopes of acknowledging and developing the “we” generation, our dynamic team of individuals has spent four years listening to the needs of an assortment of organizations who genuinely desire to count the “good” that exists within all of us,” said Managing Partner, Scott Fore.
Specifically tailored for non-profits, schools, businesses, municipalities, students and volunteers, NobleHour streamlines powerful membership management, content management, event management, hour tracking, and impact measurement solutions. NobleHour saves organizations, employers and educators valuable time, so they can better spend it creating a social impact.
Individual volunteers can use NobleHour to find and post news, events, opportunities, organizations and resources. They can also track their community involvement and earn credit for their service hours.
NobleHour, which has been in closed-beta since November, expands upon the services offered by SweatMonkey.org, a student-focused volunteer website. While SweatMonkey focused on youth and education, NobleHour speaks to the needs and wants of the entire civic-engagement community.
“Rather than be an also-ran, we have successfully created a first of its kind software that adds value to our everyday lives. Elegant in design, Noblehour will provide a platform which enables the user to safely and effectively measure their impact while working with others,” said Fore.
In the ever-changing web 2.0 world, NobleHour provides a safe and reliable place to connect and create social change.
NobleHour is based in Lakeland, FL and was started by a team of knowledgeable business investors, representing over 70 years of unparalleled entrepreneurial and business experience. They developed SweatMonkey.org in 2005 as an online service learning management platform for students and schools. SweatMonkey was used by countless organizations such as the YMCA, the SPCA, the United Way of North Central Florida, and the University of Florida. SweatMonkey was re-branded and launched in 2012 as NobleHour.com.
