You want to make a difference in your community, but you don’t know the first place to start. It can be a cumbersome process, involving a lot of internet searching.  First, there is the search for nonprofits that align with your interests – clicking through different websites, trying to find whether they have a Young Friends Board or specific young professional opportunities.  Even after all of that, there is no way to be sure that the organization is actively recruiting or needs the additional help.The solution – LaunchMe! LaunchMe is a free, online database that allows St. Louis young professionals to find and engage with young friends groups. Launch St. Louis has long been involved in the nonprofit side of establishing well-run young friends groups, and with LaunchMe, we are making it easier than ever for St. Louis’s young and talented to connect with organizations.
