Oldways

oldwayspt.org

We’re a nonprofit dedicated to improving public health by inspiring individuals and organizations to embrace the healthy, sustainable joys of the “old ways” of eating—heritage-based diets high in taste, nourishment, sustainability, and joy.


Data Analysis


Presented insights from Oldways' classes using a website We used the Python packages Streamlit to develop the website, Pandas to store and analyze Oldways' class data, and Plotly to create graphs of it. The project provided the organization with better reporting tools and allowed them to track performance of students in classes.

Opportunities for Inclusion

oppsforinclusion.org

Our mission is to serve children, adolescents and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families in the community, utilizing a person-centered planning approach. We provide quality, flexible programs, services and supports which maximize independence, foster inclusion, promote self-advocacy and build community connections.


Virtual tour + new payment platform


We created an interactive map of the OFI facilities in Waltham and changed their donation system. The students utilized HTML, CSS and JS to create an virtual tour of Opportunities for Inclusion's buildings in Waltham, and changed their donation platform to Donorbox as it presented the organization with more options for receiving/processing donations.

Parents Helping Parents

parentshelpingparents.org

We empower parents to nurture children and build stronger families. Our prevention philosophy is grounded in a self-help model based on the belief that parents are capable of developing their own solutions when given the space, encouragement, and community resources that they need.


Mobile Support App


We developed an Android/iOS app tailored to support younger parents, delivering on-demand parenting resources to the smartphone generation. The application will allow access to the resources of the Parents Helping Parents organization, allowing for a stress phone and text line, group calendars, easy in-app donation, and fast registration for online support groups/workshops. News articles on parenting will also be delivered. We used Figma for prototyping, and developed the web app in React Native. Github was used for source control.
