Join us on May 5th as we host Arthur Coddington, Director of Online Programs for Craigslist Foundation and the person behind LikeMinded.org.

The site’s purpose is to serve as an aggregate source for community involvement and local action. People can use the service to share stories of successful community projects and as a place to find resources for getting their own project off the ground.  Learn how this site is inspiring volunteerism to go viral.

According to the site, here’s how you can use it:

Discovery: In LikeMinded Beta, you can discover two kinds of information about local issues you care about:

Resources: Resources are articles, videos, tools, and audio from around the web related to local community change. It’s information in its original form, available free from the source.

Projects: Projects are the story behind community change. What issue was addressed, how did the team do it, and did it work? Projects include visibility for the people and organizations who did the hard work and info about where and when it all happened. They are a great way to get a snapshot into how people addressed issues in their neighborhood.

Sharing: Individuals and organizations are sharing local community stories through LikeMinded. The real magic comes when you share your story. What have you or your organization taken on? What cool projects have you read about? Help inspire others by sharing what you know as resources or projects.
