In addition to making public-facing apps like ForageCity, AllDayPlay, and VoxPop (coming soon!), the Innovation Lab’s youth team also creates tech solutions for inside Youth Radio. We created a prototype that maps services in and around Oakland young people can access to build and maintain healthy relationships. We’re making an iPad app to track staff and youth movement in and out of the building, for use in case of emergency. And we’re developing an app for newsroom editors to share assignments and story links. Our plan is to test and pilot these projects at Youth Radio and publish the code, in hopes that other organizations can hack into and deploy the tools in their own settings. Making non-profit worlds a better place through youth-produced tech!
