Learning = Experience + Reflection
Intelligence is not a number

Each of us has a passion to share

How Kudoz is Different

A new kind of volunteering

With Kudoz, we turn your passions into a one-hour experience. It’s the easiest, most meaningful way to volunteer. You decide what to share, when, and where.

More than jobs

Kudoz widens your world. Go places you’ve never been. Meet fascinating people. Try new hobbies. Expand your job network. Pick-up soft skills.

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 language you speak. Or the job you have as a city gardener.

join the community

Supporters are students and community members who want to help behind-the-scenes. You spread the word and get individuals to their experiences.
