Smarter Community-Building Software for Youth Leaders and Student Organizations

Successful student and youth orgs grow from transparency and trust - which starts with effective communication. Who's doing what? What's the best way to get involved? What help is needed? How can *I* make a difference? That's why we created Brightest: a modern, efficient, and easy-to-use communications system for real-world learning communities.

Brightest is a people-centric organizing system that simplifies events, communication, and community-building so you can work faster and mobilize more friends for good. Basically, you can use Facebook events and Google Forms and Sheets and a website and some email tool and probably end up using some other stuff - or you can use Brightest, because we do all that (and it's quite nice).

campus events and university programs

Simplify, Centralize & Accelerate Impact

All your members, campaigns, events, forms, signup pages, and shifts in one modern, workflow dashboard, with everything connected to help you get more done faster.

community data and analytics

We Track the Data (So You Don't Have To)

Brightest supports integrated signup, survey, volunteer, and person-by-person, ladder-of-engagement stage tracking. It’s easy to use, integrates with systems like Google Calendar and Slack, and supports fast data import and export.
