In 2009 siblings Simone (then aged 17) and Jake (then aged 15) created a website that listed all the volunteer opportunities for teens in their hometown of St. Louis, Missouri as they were frustrated by a lack of a central resource for this info. They later went on to launch a national website: volunTEENnation.org & also created a regional Youth & Family Volunteer Fair. Roughly 8k young people have found opportunities to give back through VolunteenNation since its launch!
