Background

The Center for Youth Engagement aims to provide access to high quality, safe, and supervised academic and enrichment programs to under-served youth in urban areas. This mobile app acts as the platform with which, parents, teachers and youth can find these programs and enroll in them.

The Design

The Design

It was important that this design be fun, engaging, and user-friendly for parents, educators, and kids. Upon entering the app for the first time, the user goes through a questionnaire which determines their age, time availability, special needs or language needs, and interests. This matches them with activities in their area which they can choose to ignore, 'like', or enroll in.

 Once an activity has been 'liked' or enrolled in, it will appear in the user's calendar, which sends push notifications reminders to the user's phone. Furthermore, information on transportation/bus routes is provided to ensure that the user can travel safely and easily to their activity.
