Lifetime.Education Mobile App Beta Released

We’ve been given the beta version of our mobile application being developed by the Computer Science students at Indiana University–Purdue University Fort Wayne (IPFW).

The application is a two-semester-long project for the students while our Graphics Design & Social Media Intern (also from IPFW) has supplied the graphic work.

Volunteers will be able to check their e-mail, report volunteer hours, and use their calendars on-the-go, from a single application. How exciting! We can’t wait to see the finished version!

Carriage House Tour

Today FortWayne.Education Marketing and Design Intern, Melinda, and Computer Skills instructor, Dave, toured The Carriage House.

While on the tour, they ran into Computer Skills tutor, Janeann, and Adult Basic Education tutor, Katie.

We don’t often see our volunteers in the same spot at the same time, so, naturally, we took a group photo!
