How Kudoz Works
Adults with a cognitive disability book an experience and spend an hour learning with their Host.
Earn badges for completing experiences. Badges unlock education opportunities and future roles.
We support adults to get to experiences and help hosts hone their teaching skills.
We are all learning beings
Learning = Experience + Reflection
Intelligence is not a number
You can teach an old dog new tricks
Each of us has a passion to share
For Kudoz, success means growing individuals’ sense of self, shattering stigma, and building social capital between adults with and without cognitive disabilities.
How Kudoz is Different
A new kind of volunteering
With Kudoz, we turn your passions into a one-hour learning experience. You don’t fit into a prescribed volunteering role. You set your own schedule and host when, where, and however often works for you.
Real content to fill your days
Kudoz offers splendid experiences during the day, at night, and on weekends. It’s not a generic day program where you spend time in a group of other disabled folks doing the same activities (read: swimming and bowling) on repeat.
More than jobs
Success is continual learning. Kudoz widens and deepens what people do over time, and links them up with folks who share common interests. Then, it recognizes informal learning with digital badges. From there, more meaningful roles follow.
passionate people = hosts!
Hosts are anybody and everybody with an interest, passion, or curiosity to share. Might be the spin class you take on Sundays. Or the Japanese you speak. Or the job you have as a city gardener.
