CALO Venture Spotlight

August 26, 2015

We had a great turn out to our Venture Spotlight on CALO, the Community Activity and Leadership Organization. CALO has launched their online platform to match student volunteers with volunteer opportunities. After three pilots across New England, they are ready to bring their product to Rhode Island. CALO has partnered with Bryant University, Providence College, Johnson & Wales University, and Brown University to help their students volunteer more effectively in the community. We’re excited to see what’s next for this growing venture led by a Bryant University graduate and current graduate student.
