The world is brimming with APPS and UKES. While biased toward the latter, one must respect the power of how portable electronic gadgets and software can truly enhance safety and quality of everyday life.

This post highlights two clever examples, especially in managing risks that dwell in college learning & living environments: Just In Case and SeeClickFix

Most college students carry a smart phone. That’s why an APP is a terrific tool to reach the majority of this target population, regardless of campus size or enrollment. Empowerment is available –– literally at their fingertips.

Just in Case recognizes that stress, anxiety, depression, mental health crises can strike college students anywhere, anytime. It empathetically connects students with guidance easily, on demand, with privacy –– supplementing and facilitating existing resources, not replacing them.

SeeClickFix “crowd sources” awareness to proactively improve a community on non-emergency matters. For example, road hazards can be spotted and addressed before they worsen to create loss or injury.

Whether a student, parent, school or community leader, please share with others. Contact APP providers directly to see how they may help your community.

What does this have to do with ukuleles? Community outreach is at the heart of True Joy Acoustics. We take it serious, ukuleles make it fun. Our main focus is selling, donating and creating FLEA® ukulele sponsorships. These particular APP tools were discovered during a “spin off” volunteer effort to identify practical solutions to improve student welfare at University of Cincinnati:
