Fixing a primitive system and giving users and children a more efficient and pleasant experience when volunteering, hopefully improving their quality of life.

What it does

Provides users access to a platform that offers up-to-date volunteer opportunities they can choose from as well as an organized record of all their personal volunteer hours and activities.

How I built it

We used Android Studio to develop a mobile application and used Parse's open-source API and SDK to develop a database to manage the Mobile App. Using sketch, we were created some front-end design to spruce up the look of our app to make it more pleasing to the eye.

Challenges I ran into

Not having API (YMCA Database), working with Parse database, and trying to create a semi-relational database with User-Authentication from the data YMCA holds.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

Making a mobile app that has the components to not only fulfill YMCA's needs, but also exceed their expectations in the potential outcome of the app.

What I learned

Making an efficient Parse database with some relational data and implementing Parse with Android Studio for the app.

What's next for Project Cornerstone

A transition from their website onto the mobile app that we designed and created. Eventually a bigger user base that will have easy access for their volunteering needs and opportunities.
