About the Client (Community Technology Center AmeriCorps VISTA Project)
The Community Technology Center AmeriCorps VISTA Project (rebranded the Transmission Project) placed AmeriCorps VISTA (Volunteers In Service To America) members in community media and technology centers across the country to help bridge the digital divide.
- Create a thriving online community for geographically disparate VISTAs and their supervisors.
With over 40 VISTA members stationed across the country, the CTC VISTA website required several avenues for user-generated content as well as an organization-wide directory. We implemented blogs, photo galleries, discussion forums, a calendar, wiki, and mailing list manager. An LDAP directory (OpenLDAP) provided over 200 VISTAs, VISTA alumni, and supervisors a single sign-on to access these services, and custom development allowed users to update their profiles via the web.
