Philadelphia Futures is going mobile.
With the support of PECO, Exelon IT Vice President Michael Mendendez and his team, the college access and success nonprofit released an app earlier this week to help low-income students figure out which colleges suit them best — and whether or not they’re offering financial aid. As noted by our sister site Technical.ly Philly, the app’s features sound like they might mesh well with scholarship app Scholly. Here’s a preview of what the app is bringing to the table:
The app was built specifically to meet students where they are (as in, their smartphones), noted Executive Director Joan Mazzotti in a press release. Consider the app one more notch in Mazzotti’s belt as far as leading Philly Futures toward success goes.
Under Mazzotti, who is leaving at the end of the year (or whenever a new executive director is found), 100 percent of Futures’ students have been accepted into college — not to mention the strides Futures has made in becoming a data-driven organization.
Adding a mobile app to that list ain’t half-bad, eh?-30-
