INTERNSHIP OVERVIEW

InvolveMINT is a Pittsburgh civil and social organization that builds digital complementary currency systems in under-resourced communities to empower residents to affect positive change and enable local resilience. ChangeMakers (volunteers) earn TimeCredits which can then be spent or exchanged for basic needs realized from underutilized community resources.
