Purpose and goal

The aim of the project was to develop a user-centered digital solution which measures the impact for children and young people in socio-economically vulnerable areas. An app has been developed in close collaboration with the youth. We will start implementing the app in our program from February 2019. The purpose of the project is to better understand the efforts needed in providing a long-term positive change for an individual and at the community level. Thus, we can understand which initiatives should be prioritized and how they should be designed to give the best impact.

Expected results and effects

The expected effect of the project is that we should be able to follow the long-term positive change for individuals taking part in our program. The result is an app where we can follow the individual distance travelled within each focus area. Each focus area will be measured through recurring surveys with subjective questions to all indicators. The youth has been involved in the design process throughout the pre-study and prototype phases to ensure the the app is easy, engaging and fun to use. It has also created a great commitment among the young to start using the app.

Planned approach and implementation

We have had regular reconciliations with young people in Stockholm, Malmö and Gothenburg throughout the development process. The app will be launched in February and continue to be developed based on input from the youth and from a reference group consisting of, among others, Uppsala University, Delmos and Tillväxtverket. The Challenge has been to maintain anonymity and be able to follow individuals over time, and still meet the regulations by GDPR. In the next phase we will we build an admin interface and an analysis function
