MARC - Develop a mobile device application to connect youth (ages 14-21) to fun, entertaining and helping resources in the community. This project hopes to produce a mobile application (either hybrid or native) capable of making those connections and is engaging for the target population. Hopefully, so engaging that the app could be monetized locally (the KC Metro Region) and possibly nationally. To that end the project will require an enticing, but functional graphic design, a data collection process for any data not obtainable from secondary sources, a comprehensive marketing strategy and a middleware server interface. Large project multiple year.
