THE FOUNDING TEAM
JAMUY started initially between three friends (Thomas from Belgium, Marion from France and Paola from Spain) who started the project in Frankfurt in 2016 with the help of the Social Impact Lab (as part of the Ändersgründer program). The concept was developped as an alternative to volunteering with the objective to offer both social organisations and social enthusiasts with the possibility to connect via activities of short duration and with a socially beneficial purpose.
We were soon joined by a team of ambassadors who help us in promoting the platform and the activities proposed by social organisations. Like the founders, ambassadors are volunteers and they have been and will continue to be essential to the success of the project. We have an ever growing team of ambassadors in various locations – get in contact with us if you are interested, whatever your availability and motivation are!
