Hey, Media. We’re glad you stopped by.

We’ve set this little nook of the web just for you and your media buddies because you’re a special kind of special. Yep. You find us interesting enough to talk about and that’s pretty cool in our opinion!

In the hopes that it makes it easier for you to share our story, we’ve put together some information for you below. It’s the usual… who we are, what do we do, what awards we’ve won, etc. Now, we’re not perfect (we’re a startup, after all), so if there’s anything we left out, please let us know! We’d be glad to fill in the blanks for you!

About Tandempark

It's more than a volunteer centre. It's more than volunteer management.
It's both. And it's better. 

Tandempark is a civic engagement platform that helps volunteers work together to build strong, vibrant, connected communities that we can be proud to live in and excited to visit. Our platform helps organizations recruit, manage, schedule, and communicate with their volunteer teams, while making it easier for people to discover, connect, and engage in meaningful and rewarding opportunities.  

Founded in 2015, our online community has grown significantly and is recognized as an innovator in our industry. Unlike any other platform available, we've artfully blended technology and community to make this happen and we're seeing volunteer landscape transform because of it. Now, Tandempark is helping cities implement a civic engagement infrastructure to help bring volunteers, organizations, businesses, and schools together and bring about sustainable impact and change. 

What does that all mean?

  • We help people overcome the challenges that prevent community engagement.
  • We help organizations build and manage sustainable and effective volunteer programs and initiatives.
  • We help cities get their real first glimpse into what civic engagement looks like in their community.
