We aimed to create a “care card” that lists sought-after, local resources so that a compact, pocket-size tool could be provided to students when they do and do not have access to their local Navigator. This was chosen based off our group’s initial program survey identifying our staff thought we could be better at helping students overcome their own barriers. We are lucky that our region has access to a United Way 211 call/web center to provide hundreds of potential resources to make individuals aware of. As part of our product, staff were assigned to investigate and “nominate” other types of resources students may need.
LIVE AND LEARN, MESSY MOMENTS
Filtering down resources: Staff were assigned the responsibility of nominating specific, in-demand student/community resources. At times, the list was exhaustive instead of brief.
Design Woes: obtaining a graphic from 211, which the design of the card would be based around, caused the project to be delayed. Contact marketing and design services early!
Evaluation of the product’s effectiveness will be based on
