Introducing the WalkAlong Advisory Committee

We are moving along in the site’s development, in large part thanks to the fantastic ideas and recommendations from the WalkAlong Advisory Committee (WAC). We know it is critical to include the end user in the development process of this site, and created the web site advisory committee to ensure the website appeals to our target audience. This is a group of highly involved youth who self-identify as end users of the WalkAlong site. Our team keeps the WAC up to date on the progress we are making and consults them to improve our ideas and products as they materialize. Our ultimate goal is to empower the end user by designing a site that is valuable not just in a moment of crisis, but also over the long term.

We thought we would share some of the themes of these discussions with you. The next four blog posts will be a “mini-series” containing featured discussions from our WAC meetings.
