Empowerment Marketplace Kickoff with United Way Metropolitan Dallas

We are so excited to begin our work with United Way Metro Dallas and their education programming. United Way and their education partners, City Year and the Concilio, will be using our system to perform online assessments, manage classroom activities, and have access to class material via our Learning Management System powered by CornerStone onDemand. The programs will be working with high potential students from challenging backgrounds – providing them professional and college readiness skills including Accenture’s Skills To Succeed programming.

AdvanceNet Labs staff, led by Director – Education & Empowerment Jodi Rothwell has provided a highly customized technology environment and training materials to reduce redundancy, rework, manual data entry and provide a higher quality experience and data visibilty for all program managers and participants. Technical leadership from United Way even partnered with AdvanceNet Labs to provide a “pop up online classroom” with a set of portable computers and networking that can stand up anywhere to meet students’ needs when traditional computer labs are not available.

Concilio representatives, who had administered the program without the technology support in the past already were immediately grateful for the program improvements and significant labor savings the program will provide. We are so excited to work with City Year, United Way and the Concilio on this important program!
